Roger Kimball at PJM (via Instapundit): "I understand that larger and larger swaths of America are turning purple if not blue as affluence coupled with tertiary education and cultural relativism transform more and more people into latte-drinking, NPR-listening, global-warming hysterics who regard Karl Rove as an evil genius and Sarah Palin as an anencephaltic breeding machine on skis."

If affluence coupled with tertiary education and cultural relativism does all those things, then how come I'm an NPR-hating, global-warming skeptic who regards Karl Rove as shrewd political analyst and Sarah Palin as a refreshing inspiration?

Of course, I might be the exception that proves the rule.

(But oh what a fate!)

Luckily--if one is a critical thinker (rare these days), tertiary education and cultural relativism actually backfires.

Fake Pres. Sarkozy: I must say, Governor Palin, I love the documentary they made on your life, you know, Hustler’s "Nailin Palin."
Real Sara Palin: Oh, good, thank you. Yes.

Fake Pres. Sarkozy: That was really edgy.
Real Sara Palin: [Laughs] Well

Perhaps larger and larger swaths of America are turning purple if not blue because we do not want what appears, even at close inspection, to be a real, live, idiot to have the potential to run the country.

Hey, Dijin, you ready for your electric rates to "skyrocket"?

Boy, howdy, in 4 years I'll be lucky to have a job, thanks to The One.

I'm sorry, i r a darth aggie, I have no idea what you are talking about. If it's about drilling in Alaska, the oil fields won't be producing for what, 10 years? Plus the oil, 3% of American use, will be sold on the world market at current world rates. In other words, it won't make any difference. Except for the tiny handful of special interests that will get rich(er)

He's referring to Dear Leader's comments on coal. Acknowledging that the cap and trade system He favors would bankrupt anyone foolish enough to try to build a coal fired power plant. Sounds like a great plan for energy independence. Meanwhile, back in the real world, coal is a huge source of energy for Americans...

I recommend that Obama supporters stop reading the paper on or about Jan. 20th 2009. You're all in for a huge case of reality meets inflated expectation.

djinn is that your fantasy about Sarah? Not surprising, since most of you sunken-chested leftwing men couldn't get an attractive woman if your lives depended on it.

Until the last poll closes I am betting on McCain.

At any rate, get out and vote. Everyone. Pursue your convictions all the way to the voting booth.

Truly, this election is a fork in the road. I believe every registered voter therefore needs to leave his mark. We owe each other that much, even though our political beliefs are so far apart.

Palin is not running for president. Perhaps all the liberal males, who are "not allowed" to have problems with "liberated" women (it's not PC), are able to safely poor all that on to Palin.

Today is election day. For me, the jokes are over. The fun-o-meter is unplugged and put away. No more Ack Ack! jokes. Today I vote what I believe to be the future of our nation. It is a somber day. The polls open in a half hour. I'll be there.

If McCain loses, we will rebuild. It is not the end of the world.

If Obama loses, which I still think is the case, I will rest easier.

Either way, there are major changes that need to be made. The time has come. Either way, we, in truth, as a nation, must do better. Our elected officials (they are not leaders - none of them) must understand this, or be forever voted out each cycle.

One of the consoling thoughts that I have about socialism is that it does not work because it ignores human nature. As such, it is doomed to failure. Sadly, again because of human nature, some segments of society are seduced again and again by the solution that isn't.

And so it goes.

You can fool some of the people etc etc. And while our current educational system is not up to the task of giving us an informed and competent electorate, people will be angry when their gas bill and morgatge are not paid for. People will get angry when their 401K disappears. People will get angry when their pie in the sky fails to arrive, or is just a Moon Pie.

People did in Ireland, they did in Russia (although other problems obviously exist there) and they did in France. Yep, France!

So I have hope and faith in reality extruding its beautiful head into the ongoing debate at some point. When the rich have fled or are no longer rich, when utopia remains elusive, when we are attacked on our own soil again, there will be opportunities for recovery.

To the extent that tertiary education functions as political indoctrination rather than education (just ask FIRE), it is not surprising that it turns out people who drink NPR's koolaid.
