Anti-Cities Sarah Palin Takes It To The Small Town Gun Owners

by | 14th, September 2008

SARAH Palin is on the right wing. Those newspaper investigation keep getting more insightful. Says Frank Rich in the NY Times:

This was made clear in the most chilling passage of Palin’s acceptance speech. Aligning herself with “a young farmer and a haberdasher from Missouri” who “followed an unlikely path to the vice presidency,” she read a quote from an unidentified writer who, she claimed, had praised Truman: “We grow good people in our small towns, with honesty and sincerity and dignity.” Then Palin added a snide observation of her own: Such small-town Americans, she said, “run our factories” and “fight our wars” and are “always proud” of their country. As opposed to those lazy, shiftless, unproud Americans — she didn’t have to name names — who are none of the above….

So if you’re not from a small town, you’re from a very small town, a village or – get this – a city? Sarah Palin is anti-cities?

Unlike Barack Obama, who knows all about the cities, and all about those small-town weirdos (surely heroes – Ed?)

And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

And they cling onto their guns in small towns, unlike those city slickers
