I work across the street from Boston Common, a big public park where large events and rallies often take place. Sarah Palin will be speaking there this morning, and I’m going. I’m no supporter, but I can’t miss out on the spectacle. The Tea Party Patriots will be out in force. Right now I can hear patriotic tunes blaring from the PA system.
I am amazed that so many people are drawn to a woman who often loses her way between the beginning of a thought and its conclusion. I still remember that interview with Katie Couric. It made me squirm. Call me crazy, but I like our leaders to be smarter — way smarter — than the average American. She doesn’t cut it.
Just back from the rally on Boston Common. My take: this is a huge class war. The working class/blue collar is pissed off and wants to take down the white collar establishment. The working class is angry, and for good reason, but I don’t agree with their philosophy at all.
