The liberal response to Palin

It's becoming hilarious watching the mainstream, Eastern media elites reaction to Sarah Palin. I'm still trying to figure out if it comes solely from a visceral hatred of all she stands for, or is it the threat she poses, to their values, or lack there of. They say she's unsophisticated and inarticulate. Her folksiness, and some would call straight forward way of speaking, send them screaming and covering their ears, while at the same time they envy her connection to the great unwashed. Remember the descriptions of the last two Democratic presidendial nominees articulations of policy. They were described as nuanced and complex. In others words, no one could understand where they stood. Not so with Sarah. They abhor her homegrown values and absolutes. In their minds, no one should be that certain about what they believe. After all, it should take years of post graduate, Ivy League education before you even attempt to form opinion, and be welcomed at D.C. cocktail parties.

So, as their readership continues to fall, like the northern glaciers into Al Gores rising ocean levels, the Aurora Borealis, shines brighter over Alaska. Could Sarah be the answer to the founding fathers original intention? A citizen legislator? You Betcha!
