Sissy, I don't get the part about "the arse-backward narrative of Angelo Codevilla's Ruling Class". I thought his essay was right on the money.

Oh, my. That's not what I meant at all. I agree Codevilla is spot on, as blogged here:

Darwin and the clueless left: It was all a misunderstanding

Gramsci's long march through the institutions ends at the water's edge

What do Oprah Winfrey, Glenn Beck and Bristol Palin have in common?

I'll have to fix that. Thanks for pointing it out!


Sissy

Thanks for the clarification, and the clarity, Sissy.

To your point about Barbara Bush, she sure stood up to be counted as a ruling class member in good standing, with her comment about Sarah. Disappointing that she didn't just keep her mouth shut.

What's disappointing to me is that Bush, Sr. didn't tell Barbara to put a sock in it. But, you see, that's how and why the blueblood Yankee class went wrong. There's no denying the intelligence of Abigail Adams et al., but once the women-with-big-mouth syndrome set in, the New England blue-blood men never had the gumption to tell them to shut up. Maybe it was guilt about the witch trials, who knows? Barbara and Laura Bush, if you are listening ... SHUT THE HELL UP! WE DON'T CARE WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT SISTER SARAH OR SAME SEX MARRIAGE OR ANYTHING ELSE. Now shut up and get off stage!

Sissy, I like Barbara Bush. And if we are to defeat the Obamination and associated minions we need a Big Tent, not to start fighting amongst ourselves. We need to find a candidate for 2012 who unites us, and who can inspire the whole country to get back to work, not splinter into groups that the left can pick off. I guess I'm hyper-sensitive as a formerly liberal New Englander with a big mouth....

I work with people who all voted for Obama and who are now disaffected, but they will not be won over by people they perceive to be extremist. They hate both parties, perceive both parties to be in the pocket of the rich and to care nothing for ordinary working Americans. They want jobs for themselves and their children and can't move to China or India for them. Their houses are worth less than they paid for them and they can't sell them even if they got a job in another part of the country.

The problem seems to be that it's the Independents and currently disafffected Democrats who will decide the next election. Also the young. So they are the people we have to appeal to, reach out to, get the message out to. And they are more scared of people like Sarah P than Barbara B.

Back to the point of your post, dear Sissy.

Government employees THINK they are our unassailable ruling class and must be disabused of that erroneous notion by any means necessary, including a good swift kick in the gluteus maximus!

The Congress, the Executive Branch, the Judicial Branch are ALL our EMPLOYEES and we need to keep reminding them over and over and over again until they "get it" since they are, one and all, slow learners!

Onward Christian soldiers!
