Coakley and the common touch
This is from the Boston Globe, quoted by Michelle Malkin:
Coakley bristles at the suggestion that, with so little time left, in an election with such high stakes, she is being too passive.Do you believe that? A democratic (small “d”) politician scorning the idea of shaking hands with voters?
But how can we blame her for her arrogance toward ordinary humanity? After all, she is a member of a political party led by this man:
Of course she scorns hoi polloi! She’s one of the anointed. Or as Noemie Emery put it, she is one of the educated class. That’s the thing about gnosticism: one can’t hate and reject reality and also truly love the salt of the earth. The Democrats have been losing the working man for decades. It will be interesting, one day, to watch the private sector unions realize that they have more in common with management, more shared interests and common values, than they do with the Democrats.LA replies:
By coincidence, I just posted a comment by Charles T. in which, following, Sowell, he suggests calling gnostic liberal the anointed.January 15

The photos in this thread are great. They convey the sense that these people are truly “Anointed” and are prepared to lead us to utopia.Tim W. writes:
The Coakley photo reminded me of images I’ve seen of Massachusetts Chief Justice Margaret Marshall. It’s that same self-absorbed, holier-than-thou condescension one always sees in high ranking liberal women. Marriage is an evolving paradigm, she told us, and who is better suited to decide the direction of that evolution than Margaret Marshall?LA replies:
That’s a more interesting explanation of Palin hatred than that she’s unsophisticated, a hick, etc.
