The Great Divide

"To the sort of people who believe themselves sophisticated citizens of the world and feel a sense of pride at saving the planet by purchasing carbon offsets, a woman who has borne five children is incomprehensible. Add in moose-hunting, a champion snowmobiler husband and a pregnant 17 year old daughter, and the phrases 'white trash' and 'trailer trash' are deployed."

Read this excellent piece on the Sarah Palin phenomenon and why the elitists on the left just don't get it.
