Big Important Piece of the Morning: Palin Enragement Syndrome

Via HotAir:

And this is enough to illustrate the point: much of the opposition to Palin is not political. It is deeply and thoroughly cultural. Sarah Palin is Miss Jesusland, the living emblem and foremost representative of an America that progressive elites had hoped had been swept into the dustbin of history. One definition of culture is “the attitudes and behavior characteristic of a particular social group.” Palin represents the values, tastes, and institutions, the attitudes and behaviors, that are shared by one American sub-culture and despised by another. Hugh Hewitt had it right over a year ago, when he said that Palin is “the opposite of every choice that lefty elites have ever made . . . the antithesis of everything that liberal urban elites are.”

    Excellent piece and I agree that, short of a campaign platform, almost ALL of the opposition to Palin is cultural/stylistic at this point rather than political. What I disagree with is that it is just the liberal urban elites who find Palin culturally distant or unappealing.
