The self-annointed elite inside the Beltway and the so-called “Main Stream” media are oh-so smart and oh-so clever. They are oh-so sophisticated and while they attend their oh-so special parties and nibble their brie and sip their chardonnay, they demean us as stupid f_____g red necks. Red necks, that’s people like you and me and Sharron Angle. It is anyone that actually produces something of value (I.e. “works”) and believes in God (as distinct from going to church).
Perhaps the most important concept that they really don’t understand is how their contempt is returned in spades. They are so special and gifted and entitled, how could anyone despise them? It is beyond them, so if the predicted political tsunami strikes they will be totally bewildered.
They proven themselves to be fools by what they have done to the economy and in a thousand other ways. And they think that they are some kind of elite!
Here is an interesting commentary on their inability to be in touch with the greater reality. (Inside the beltway is a giant echo chamber wherein all you hear is the babbling of fools endlessly repeated to one other.)
The Angle-Reid campaign is just a microcosm of the larger change in American politics. It is so high-profile only because of who Harry Reid is. My hope is that once we retake out country, the great majority does not again fall asleep.
