go to Best of the Web Today and look at the piece titled Hating Sarah Palin. It refers to an article in Salon by a first-class freakin' nutcase named Lamott who has such opinions as
I sat outside a 7-Eleven and had a sacramental Dove chocolate bar. Jeez: Here we are again. A man and a woman whose values we loathe and despise -- lying, rageful and incompetent, so dangerous to children and old people, to innocent people in every part of the world -- are being worshiped, exalted by the media, in a position to take a swing at all that is loveliest about this earth and what's left of our precious freedoms.
When I got home from church, I drank a bunch of water to metabolize the Dove bar and called my Jesuit friend, who I know hates these people, too. I asked, "Don't you think God finds these smug egomaniacs morally repellent? Recoils from their smugness as from hot flame?"
And he said, "Absolutely. They are everything He or She hates in a Christian."
If you can stomach it, or desire to see PDS in a fairly pure form displayed by one of the 'elites' who thinks they- using a government run by them, of course- should control your life, you can click on the link at the WSJ site; I'm not linking to it. You can pretty much get it all from this paragraph:
Everything you need to know about how to bear up during these two months is already inside you. Go within: Work on your own emotional acre. Stand still, and hurt, and feel crazy. Then drink a lot of water, pray, meditate, rest. Rest is a spiritual act. Now, I am a reform Christian, so it is permissible for me to secretly believe that God hates this woman, too. I heard God slam down a couple of shooters while she was talking the other night.
'It is permissible for me to secretly believe that God hates this woman'. I tend to have something of Harry Dresden's feelings about God, but in my most dejected moments I have not thought something like that about anyone. That's just plain wrong.
These people really, truly are effing insane.
