- elites fall to the ground in paroxysms of foaming madness
From American Thinker:
This is good news indeed.
One of the few times I have been truly disappointed with Ann Coulter was when she jumped on the ruling party bandwagon against Ms. McMahon. But no one is perfect and Ms. Coulter's great flaw is that she is an elitist (remember her great objection to George W Bush's Supreme Court nomination of Harriet Miers was that she didn't attend an Ivy League law school, but rather graduated from a "cow college").
We are told that Connecticut is the richest and most highly educated state in the Union and for that reason they will never elect a "professional wrestler" to the Senate.
I could point out that people who would ever will elect Chris Dodd to anything have to be immune to shame, but I won't. I have to remind myself that while Chris Dodd has always looked like a pathetic half-wit and clown to real Americans (you know, people who live in "flyover country", go to church, own guns and didn't attend Harvard) to the elites he has always looked like one of them.
That is until he and his good buddy Barny Frank orchestrated the financial meltdown which has all those rich and well educated Connecticut elites looking at their shrinking net worth and casting about for someone - anyone - who can fix the fraking economy.
And into that environment steps a woman who has already built a billion-dollar business from the ground up and who therefore can be expected to understand a thing or two about economics.
In this election year I (and Connecticut Republicans) believe that even East Coast snobs will hold their noses and vote for someone who is actually competent to do the job (rather than the ruling class drone they would normally prefer to vote for).
If I and the Connecticut GOP is wrong the Senate will get another member who votes with the Democrats all of the time instead of only when it really counts (like John McCain and Lindsey Graham).
But if I and the Connecticut GOP are correct think about what a message that will send to the elite inside-the-beltway ruling class member wannabe RINO establishment (talk about gnashing teeth and staining underwear).
I think it's a gamble worth taking.
