re: #262 austin_blue

I found that a telling moment. See, ultimately what you represent is not conservatism. Heck, I suspect that somewhere, Barry Goldwater and Ronald Reagan are spinning like helicopter rotors at the very idea.

No, you represent the latest iteration of an anti-intellectualism that periodically rises in the American character.

More to the point, something is wrong when we celebrate mental mediocrity like yours under the misapprehension that competence or, God forbid, intelligence, makes a person one of those “elites” — that’s a curse word now — lacking authenticity, compassion and common sense.

Heh, check my rant here.

Though I am not so sure I want her to run and win. Yet, maybe this guy is onto something. Maybe it will take a Palin for us to get a Reagan.

/oooh, that’s gotta burn someone…
