A Good Rant (And Why Palin Makes Leftists Crazy)

It's a fitting revenge on the Ivies, who as usual seem to populate leftist administrations almost exclusively, this time coupled with a leftist Congress driving the country to debt and destruction. James Capua, The American Thinker:
Add to this the notion of corporate recruiters passing Harvard and Princeton by for Penn State, Purdue and Texas A & M, because the latter institutions are more likely to justify the time and expense of a recruitment visit in terms of yielding employees with the kind of skills companies need, and we seem to be witnessing if not hope for threatened elites, at least change.
Some musings on the angst of the elites from the Chicago Boyz. Status-anxiety run amok. (And no, we don't want to have sex with our parents. Oh yeah, we're the crazy ones.)

P.S. While mounting what defense he can muster at the NY Times, poor David Brooks is worried about our "narcissistic sense of victimization, an egomaniacal belief in one’s own rightness and purity". Hey, let me nurture that. In the interest of fairness.

P.P.S. That's not to say that there aren't a few brilliant conservatives from the Ivies. A few who dare to speak out:) Harvard Professor Harvey Mansfield on the soft despotism of American sensitivity.

This from Sissy Dave -"Dinesh D’Souza’s Forbes cover article, “How Obama Thinks,” contained the sort of untethered assertions that have become the lingua franca of this movement. Obama got his subversive radicalism from his father’s grave, D’Souza postulated: “He adopted his father’s position that capitalism and freedom are code words for economic plunder.” The fact that Newt Gingrich embraced this offensive theory is a sign of how severely the normal intellectual standards have been weakened." - the Squiting gent who gushed all over Obama's trouser crease.

Oh yeah, that Media is just dandy!
