Arrogance and Condescension seem to be genetic traits on the left
Posted by: McQ on Saturday, September 13, 2008

How else to you explain this flood of vile trash that passes for opinion or analysis among the netroots and "journalists" when it comes to Sarah Palin.

It has become a sort of hobby to me to find the rantings of the deranged among the left and bring them to you simply because they show it is more than an isolated occurrence where one or two nutballs give vent to their inner viciousness. I have no idea who they think they persuade with their nastiness, but I do know I, for one, take their screeds as a firm indication that I have no reason ever to read them again.

My two latest entries to the "who cares what they may write in the future" list are Michael Seitzman at HuffPo (lots of the deranged seem to hang out at HuffPo) and Katha Pollitt of The Nation.

First Seitzman:
I realized three things tonight. For one, if you are a McCain/Palin/Bush voter, you and I do not have a difference of opinion. We have a difference in brain power. Two, she really is as ignorant as I feared. And, three, she really is kinda hot. Basically, I want to have sex with her on my Barack Obama sheets while my wife reads aloud from the Constitution. (My wife is cool with this if I promise to "first wipe off Palin's tranny makeup." I married well.)

Now, I want to be clear and speak directly to those of you who LOVED that Palin interview. You're an idiot. I mean that.
Who is Seitzman? Who knows? I didn't even bother to click the "bio" link on the post. It isn't really worth the effort. In that short excerpt he proves he's not funny, not particularly tolerant and certainly seems to feel that only he has it all figured out and that should you disagree, well, you're just a dummie. No, I take that back - you're an idiot. Apparently third-grade taunts and sexual innuendo and preversion are about as good as he can do, and yet he has the temerity to call other's "idiots".

As for Ms. Pollitt, I loved the way she started her little screed. Apparently she, like other faux feminists, is sure she represents the "one-true-way" and has the authority and gender to throw around declarations such as this:
John McCain chose the supremely under-qualified Sarah Palin as his running mate partly because she is a woman. If you have a problem with that, you're a sexist.
So there. My guess is that when John Kerry named a certain freshman senator as his running mate in 2004, she went all melty inside and had no concerns whatsoever about experience -something with which Palin trumps both of the freshmen senators in question here. But we're the sexists.

And how condescending can Pollitt get? Well, you tell me:
Well, I'm not playing. I don't care about Sarah Palin's family. I don't care if she's a good mother. I don't care if she's happily married, or who shops and who vacuums, or who takes care of the kids while both parents are at work. I don't want her recipe for caribou hot dogs, either. Life chez Sarah and Todd might make an adorable sitcom (Leave It to Jesus?) or a scathing tell-all a decade or so down the road (Governor Dearest?). Either way, so what? This is an election, not The View. As for feminism's meaning, what can you say after you've said that her career shows that even right-wing fundamentalist women have taken in feminism's message of empowerment and that's good, but that Palin's example suggests women can do it all without support from society and that's bad?
Anyone - has Palin every suggested she did it all alone and without help from "society"? Nope. What she's instead said is government isn't always the answer. You know, sometimes just family and friends will do. For that bit of heresy, she's a fundy freak who has single-handedly destroyed feminism's hard won victories?

These hatemongers better do a reality check if they think this trashing of Palin is going to hurt her among working women and moms.

What you see from Seitzman and Pollitt are the latest examples of a constant drumbeat of vile hate continuing to emmanate from the left in general and the netroots in particular. And all Republicans can say is "thank you" and "keep it up".

The word cad comes to mind immediately, but I forgot the Left doesn’t see women as objects.
“So, when American workers hear John McCain talking about putting ‘Country First,’” Obama said, “it’s fair to ask –- which country?”
The word here would seem to be unpatriotic, but Obama promised he would never call John McCain unpatriotic, so it must be that Obama has gone completely insane, rendering him unfit for office.

I don’t care about Sarah Palin’s family.
Yet Pollitt spends half her column talking about Palin’s family.

Pollitt asks of Palin:
You say you don’t believe global warming is man-made. Could you tell us what scientists you’ve spoken with or read who have led you to that conclusion? What do you think the 2,500 scientists of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change are getting wrong?
My question for Pollitt: Just how many of those 2500 signatories are, you know, real scientists (600) and of those real scientists, just how many actually reviewed the final report before signing (4)?

"This is an election, not The View."

On a more positive note, it seems we share the same opinion of the triviality and shallowness of The View, if not that of the female participants.

This just HAS to be Karl Rove’s fault somehow, right?

I encourage the Olberman left to continue going down this path.

"Arrogance and Condescension seem to be genetic traits on the left"

The left only care about perception and how it makes them feel. If they condescend, that must mean they are superior and justified.

It isn’t a trait, its a need.

Pollitt’s been one of my faves since just after 9/11.
She wrote this article right afterwards (9/20/01) about how she agonized over letting her daughter hang a flag in her window.
You see, that flag is a symbol of repression and war and stuff and it’s what caused 9/11 or something.

There is a difference between ’society’ and ’government’, and it’s telling that lefties can’t tell that difference.

She not accusing Palin of suggesting that she did on her own. Pollitt is saying that she did do it on her own, and thats whats bad. Because it raises the bar, and that it is bad for the ’it takes a village’ and we’re all victims crowd, commonly known as Democrats.

But it is a blatant mischaracterization of what Palin actually has said.

There really is no middle ground anymore. The left really thinks that the right is evil and that they have been cheated at every turn when the real state of the matter is that they go about and shoot them selves in the foot at ever critical juncture. It is quite hilarious to see so many over valued egos make up so many false stories as to why they lose. They just cannot accept that their opponents at just normal people like themselves with different opinions on how the world should work.

When that sinks in you then wonder where this will go. You can see that it will not end well.

Yeah, I heard that. Wow, according to the infallible left, Sarah Palin is a child molester. I thought that the left wanted Obama to win. At this rate , it will be a landslide for him. I certainly hope they get all the air time they can with this.

RE: The Gonzman’s link to Randi Rhodes

AI-YI-YI!

There’s enough vitriol and insanity coming out of the left these days to provide material for dozens of disserations on abnormal psychology.

You probably should have clicked on the bio for Seitzman.
Seitzman is a Hollywood hack.
