I just got done watching the VP debate, and as expected, Palin played up the folksy, down-home angle. I think this will play well with the Republicans who have been nervous about McCain’s running mate pick. This is idiotic! I don’t want my next-door neighbor running this country. My next-door neighbors are morons, just like me.
I don’t want my President to be a guy I can imagine having a beer with. I want my President to have such a command of home and foreign policy that he would be talking over my head on almost every issue. I want the President to understand running a country in ways that are far beyond my ken. I want a professor, not a drinking buddy.
I want an elitist.
