Great opinion piece up on the ADN today, about Sarah Palin. Using Sinclair Lewis to make your point? Brilliant. Best part was the last paragraph; it makes me have hope in the state I call home these days:
Over-intellectualized academics and stuffed shirt attorneys shouldn’t be vice-presidents, either. But anti-intellectualism and romanticized ignorance masquerading as common virtue are no brief for leadership. Their most serious flaw is a lack of enlightened vision, one realistic about constraints, manifestly respectful of the rules and caring of others in society. That’s what people are listening for in this election.
