Clotted liberal cliches...

Camille Paglia:

...As I have repeatedly said in this column, I have never had the slightest problem in understanding Sarah Palin's meaning at any time. On the contrary, I have positively enjoyed her fresh, natural, rapid delivery with its syncopated stops and slides -- a fabulous example of which was the way (in her recent interview with John Ziegler) that she used a soft, swooping satiric undertone to zing Katie Couric's dippy narcissism and to assert her own outrage as a "mama grizzly" at libels against her family.

Ideology-driven attacks on Palin became clotted liberal cliches within 24 hours of her introduction as John McCain's running mate. What a bunch of tittering lemmings the urban elite have become in this country. From Couric's vicious manipulations of video clips to Cavett's bourgeois platitudes, the preemptive strike on Palin as a potential presidential candidate has grossly misfired. Whatever legitimate objections may be raised to Palin on political grounds (explored, for example, by David Talbot in Salon) have been lost in the amoral overkill that has defamed a self-made woman of concrete achievement in the public realm.....

There's nothing much I can do about the nihilist ant-workers who are busily devouring and destroying the culture. They will win in the end, because they are too stupid to realize they are destroying themselves at the same time. Sort of termites eating the ship, and going down with it.

But the remaining pleasure I can have is to hurt them---to make them suffer. And one way I can do that is to support Sarah Palin. Few things have been more revealing than the way they HATED her from the first day, even without knowing much about her. She's REAL, and our empty-hearted zombies, our fake-pacifists and fake-liberals and fake-progressives and fake-Quakers...they knew it instantly!

Sarah, if you never do anything else in the world, I will love you forever for the way you made the lefty slime-creatures squirm! what fun that was!
