Boondoggle

One blogger’s personal bridge to nowhere

Elitist liberals, blah blah blah

There is a long, digressive, and intellectually flimsy article in The Wall Street Journal called “The Roots of Liberal Condescension” (byline: “Snobbery is the last refuge of the liberal-arts major.”). Lest I suspect that the piece contain any more than tired Republican tropes railing against America-hating and effete elites, though, the author quickly disabuses me of this fanciful notion by beginning with a victimization of, who else?, Sarah Palin, that martyr of down-at-home populist conservatism (except for, um, Kathleen Parker, Peggy Noonan, David Brooks, George Will…). The piece ends with a mention, naturally, of Jeremiah Wright and…Sarah Palin, then reminds me why it was written in the first place: Barack Obama went to Columbia and Harvard!

And even when these elitist liberals try to appear patriotic, they can’t even wave the flag right.
