Leftist Condescension

It just gets better and better.

Take a look at this article by Jane Smiley on Slate subtitled The unteachable ignorance of the red states.

Then, take a gander at this very good response by Bruce Thornton titled
Jane Smiley, Republican Party Recruiter.

Of course, we can't leave out Maureen Dowd, who told Chris Matthews on Sunday that she and he would "go up" in the coming Rapture, but all of us hypocritical Christian voters who supported Bush would be going the other direction. Her vitriol can be found HERE (NYTimes registration required).

As I said a few days ago, I hope this garbage keeps up. While the leftists keep patting themselves on their collective back about how smart and clever they are, Conservatives will continue to win national elections.

Can any explain to me how Dowd ever won a Pulitzer? Oh never mind, it shouldn't surprise me in the least.

Wow. I'd be really insulted if I wasn't so amused. This Jane Smiley lady better see a doctor soon. She has had a MAJOR break from reality.

And she should check her history too... if I remember correctly, it was REPUBLICAN president Abraham Lincoln who freed the slaves. Somehow, she was trying to link her cooky ideas of today to the "Progressives" of yester year who supposedly were the only ones to stand for what was right 140+ years ago.

And don't you love how liberals want to call themselves "Progressives?" A rose by any other name... in this case... a liberal by any other name is still out of touch with mainstream america (bigoted and ignorant as we may be).
