The “Elitistated Class”
What is it? (via HotAir) David Brooks is a blithering idiot. Period. Fully aware of sounding like a pompous ass myself, by whatever metric you choose to measure intelligence, I would dust Brooks twice on any topic before breakfast. And yet, I’m likewise quite certain that I’m not a part of this “educated class”: The public is not only shifting from left to right. Every | Read More »
David Brooks Is An Elitist Douchebag
NY Slimes Times columnist David Brooks is the very embodiment of what’s wrong with the GOP. He’s a pompous jackass who gets weak in the knees around other ivy league asshats like him. In his latest column , Brooks waxes poetic about the current plight of the “educated class” in America. By “educated class” he’s of course referring to ivy league a-holes who talk like | Read More »
David Brooks’ Peter Jennings Moment
Via The Other McCain. Remember when in the days following the 1994 midterms, Peter Jennings offered this pinhead elitist opinion on the election results: Some thoughts on those angry voters. Ask parents of any two-year-old and they can tell you about those temper tantrums: the stomping feet, the rolling eyes, the screaming. It’s clear that the anger controls the child and not the other way | Read More »
Life With Frum-py
The Collectivist News Network (CNN) has a new, fresh, smiley faced ‘conservative’ they’ve added to their stellar roster of David Gergen, Hillary’s hairdresser, and Ed Rollins who wrote in January that Barack Obama was just the sort of leader that we need. David Frum, as many of you know, is an intellectual. He loves being an intellectual and will make that point to any one | Read More »

Why scientists are under-represented in politics.
Bluntly? Because they say stupid things like this. When it comes to greenhouse-gas emissions, Energy Secretary Steven Chu sees Americans as unruly teenagers and the Administration as the parent that will have to teach them a few lessons. Speaking on the sidelines of a smart grid conference in Washington, Dr. Chu said he didn’t think average folks had the know-how or will to to change | Read More »
Exposing Peggy Noonan: Are You Part of Her Secret Club?
Peggy Noonan is an elitist. She’s a good one too. Being an elitist involves displaying exceptional manners and grace. Noonan does both. Her polite, calm demeanor often obscures her passions. She doesn’t allow herself to become too emotional. To do so would be undignified. But Sarah Palin has gotten under her skin. There is something about Sarah that has Noonan unhinged. Without any effort, Sarah | Read More »
Maureen Dowd is a Raging Snob!
OK, I admit it. When it comes to Maureen Dowd, I’m like a moth to a flame. I know that I have already written a diary about how ridiculous she is, but I am back for more. This time, I would like to try her (and The New York Times) in the court of public opinion, and if you all would be so kind as | Read More »
Kathleen Parker on Sarah Palin: Palin’s recent interviews with Charles Gibson, Sean Hannity, and now Katie Couric have all revealed an attractive, earnest, confident candidate. Who Is Clearly Out Of Her League…. If BS were currency, Palin could bail out Wall Street herself. Kathleen Parker on William Ayers: “Palling around with terrorists,” as Sarah Palin said of Obama, gets to an underlying xenophobic, anti-Muslim sentiment. | Read More »
The ruckus over Sarah Palin is proof that the Obama campaign and many media types are truly elitist. Senator Obama has done very little of substance beyond giving well received speeches. His own party admits that. He should too. There is nothing wrong with being new on the scene. Admit it and let people decide who they want as President in times of crisis. That | Read More »
Obama attacks computer illiterate
Computers are great things, and email is a useful tool, but it is not the only way to research or communicate. Those who have teams working under them, particularly a POTUS, don’t really need to use them themselves. Obama has attacked McCain because of his “computer illiteracy.” I’m willing to bet we all know a few people who are computer illiterate, probably because of a | Read More »
