What I keep getting from these rallies is We are the stupid and we're better than you. God, it's all so galling. "She's reg'lar folk." WhatEVER. I mean, I grew up in Tucson, Arizona, and I'm not proud to be ignorant because I'm not ignorant. I worked really hard, studied hard, had shit jobs for over a decade... and that makes me... what? An East Coast Liberal Elitist? I'm middle class, just like they are. Sarah Palin says these are the "real Americans." All the rest of us are, what, holograms? Not Americans? Get an education and talk in complete sentences with words longer than two syllables and you're un-American? Move to the city and you're un-American?* Fuck these morons! Fuck them with their lipstick and their pit bulls and their idiotic slogans scrawled with elementary school tempera paint on Walmart poster board. Fuck Joe the fake plumber. And a hearty fuck you to Sarah motherfucking Palin, fake middle class Jezebel whore coopted by Bill Kristol and his cynical "she's our new project" evil neocon think tank.
I'm so glad these people are losing.
OK, I feel better now. This blog will now resume laughing and pointing at shoes and hairdos.
*Maybe some of these yahoos should read David McCullough's biography of John Adams, or Sarah Vowell's The Wordy Shipmates, her fascinating new book about the puritan founders of Boston (and Harvard), and learn a little more about the contributions of East Coast elitists. Or, heck, maybe they should read some writing by other noteworthy East Coast elitists like Thomas Jefferson? May I suggest the Declaration of Independence?
UPDATE: What an honor! This post is featured on Free Republic! And they try to work up some outrage but get all distracted when they find out that –OMG– Princess Sparkle Pony is a guy. And then the whole thing dissolves into calling me a fag and worrying about my neighbors' children. LOL. Hi, losers! I hope you'll enjoy the upcoming Democratic president, Senate, House of Representatives and Supreme Court!
UPDATE: Aw, Free Republic pulled the post, probably when they realized how much I was enjoying it.
