Thanks Camille!

Camille Paglia is my favorite liberal. She has an innate immunity to the arrogant elitism that's so typical of the entrenched left. Camille, thank you. From her latest column:
I have been deeply impressed by the citizen outrage that spilled out into town hall meetings this year. And I remain shocked at the priggish derision of the mainstream media (locked in their urban enclaves) toward those events. This was a moving spectacle of grassroots American democracy in action. Aggrieved voters have a perfect right to shout at their incompetent and irresponsible representatives. American citizens are under no duty whatever to sit in reverent silence to be fed propaganda and half-truths. It is bizarre that liberals who celebrate the unruly demonstrations of our youth would malign or impugn the motivation of today's protestors with opposing views.

The mainstream media's failure to honestly cover last month's mass demonstration in Washington, D.C. was a disgrace. The focus on anti-Obama placards (which were no worse than the rabid anti-LBJ, anti-Reagan or anti-Bush placards of leftist protests), combined with the grotesque attempt to equate criticism of Obama with racism, simply illustrated why the old guard TV networks and major urban daily newspapers are slowly dying. Only a simpleton would believe what they say.

Pass this along to all who live in the 4Th district in St. Louis Missouri. On November 3 2009(special election) write in Rachel Storch's name don't forget to fill in circle or scanner will not count the write in. Carnahan's and Obama lover politicians would not let Rachel run to replace Jeff Smith for 4Th district. Joe Keaveny an Obama supporter was selected for the 4Th district Missouri State Senate seat. Rachel is a Hillary Clinton supporter and is at present a Representative of the Missouri State House 28Th district. Obama has been trying to get rid of Rachel since his election. No Republicans or other parties are running for this position in the 4Th district. Don't let them get away with this hand picked Obama lover. Write Rachel Storch's name in. Spread the word to all St. Louis blogs. Thank You

pumacraig,

That's very interesting. I wonder if Rachel would be willing to do an interview... I'd love to get her story about recent events and I know the story of her election a few years ago is pretty compelling.

And I thought I was the only conservative to read her.
While I do not agree with her politics, I like the fact that she admits that there are problems with the Dems and pulls no punches.
If you want a good laugh, read some of the comments from her haters. To quote Jamie Alman, they are true moonbats.
