Hmm, sounds a little like a description of an article I wrote just last week, right?
Actually, no. I’m definitely not “noted,” even in the most generous application of the word.
In any case, the article is actually quite good, and I’d recommend you take a look at it. Here my favorite lines:
“What is so unnerving about the candidacy of Sarah Palin is the degree to which she represents—and her supporters celebrate—the joyful marriage of confidence and ignorance.”
“When it comes to choosing the people whose thoughts and actions will decide the fates of millions, then we suddenly want someone just like us, someone fit to have a beer with, someone down-to-earth—in fact, almost anyone, provided that he or she doesn’t seem to intelligent or well educated.”
At least I’m not the only one out there thinking along these lines.
