Sarah Palin as Hobbit?

I’m not sure about Sarah Palin yet, though, like the rest of the talking head world, she’s been on my mind a lot lately.

I don’t want to be a knee-jerk reactionary like the Progressive Media, but this article is powerful stuff.

It will offend Progressives (who go by the deceptive term “liberals” now), and it maybe should be shorter, but this Berkeley girl says things that need to be thought about.

The Wilding of Sarah Palin

In the wilding of Sarah Palin, the Left shows its true colors. Rather than sheild the vulnerable, leftists will mow down any man, woman, or child who gets in their way. Instead of a movement of hope and change, it is a cauldron of hate.

I don’t think most common leftists are particularly hateful, just puritanical, but their approach to politics does bring out a reactionary, self-righteous tendency to project and to denounce their opposition.

I still have a great affection for the Hobbits of this world who want to tend their gardens, enjoy dinner, and be left alone to love their way of life and their neighbors.

But if you rouse them, if you try to impose your vision of the world on them, they’ll fight you. And when they do, they’ll find out (and so will you) that they are not alone.

Maybe Sarah Palin speaks for us Hobbits.

A warning: the article linked to above uses some pretty aggressive and explicit language.

Maybe.
