I've recently been accused of being an "anti-intellectual." Actually, anti-elitist would be more accurate, but accuracy is a little too much to expect from some. Anyway, Sister Sarah (Palin) was also accused of the same thing over at History News Network a while back. Nothing new here, elites are known for their sneering attitude toward "them thar huntin', fishin', rural types." So it was all the more interesting to read of the recent astounding news regarding Mrs. Palin's new book:
A publishing industry source told POLITICO that they “cannot remember a non-fiction book taking off like this in the pre-order market. It became number one only a couple of hours after nothing more than a date announcement. It is truly unprecedented.”
Already #1 at Amazon as this post is going up. Wow. Anti-intellectuals can read?! I'll betcha Mrs. Palin promotes American exceptionalism in her book. Story here.
