Joe Klein: 'Obama is the precise opposite of Mountain Man Todd Palin'
NewsBusters ^ | September 11, 2008 | P.J. Gladnick

Posted on 09/11/2008 5:26:10 AM PDT by PJ-Comix

Remember all those months of the MSM building up the myth of Barack Obama, the Lightworker of unique spiritual powers whose image was frequently photoshopped to present his blessed head surrounded by a halo? Well, now Time magazine columnist, Joe Klein, is upset that Americans are supporting Sarah Palin because of another "myth" of a small town frontier America. Those who create the myths really shouldn't be complaining about what they perceive as myths but that is exactly what Klein does in his column (emphasis mine):

Sarah Palin has arrived in our midst with the force of a rocket-propelled grenade. She has boosted John McCain's candidacy and overwhelmed the presidential process in a way that no vice-presidential pick has since Thomas Eagleton did the precise opposite — sinking his sponsor, George McGovern, in 1972. Obviously, something beyond politics is happening here. We don't really know Palin as a politician yet, whether she is wise or foolhardy, substantive or empty. Our fascination with her — and it is a nonpartisan phenomenon — is driven by something more primal. The Palin surge illuminates the mythic power of the Republican Party's message since the advent of Ronald Reagan.

Todd so far seems to be a classic red-blooded American male, family-focused, independently-minded, hard-working...he’s from the real world.

Arugula McTeleprompter (D-Rezko) is a new-age castrated drone, speaking in theoreticals and PC buzz words to avoid offending anyone (or taking a stand on anything). He’s never worked an honest day in his life, considers signing people up for every new handout he can get funded by those who get up before noon an accomplishment, and has devoted his life to making people as dependent on omnipotent government as possible. He knows no life outside of the overgrown urban gutter, magnet to those can’t or won’t make an effort to support themselves.

Polar opposites is putting it lightly.

Ralph Peters nailed these nitwits today:

WHY OUR ELITES FEAR FAITH

Believers are mocked (if not too publicly at election time). Sen. Barack Obama's behind-closed-doors remark in San Francisco to the effect that worried blue-collar chumps cling to God and guns perfectly captured the left's worldview, equating faith and firearms as equal menaces to an enlightened society.

Then along came Palin to appall the establishment - a moose-hunting Christian with a working-class husband, the precise stereotype Obama had mocked. The media's attacks on her since her nomination have been the most unfair I've ever seen.

I have this persistant fantasy of Todd Palin decking Barack Obama the next time he calls Sarah a nasty name, and the Secret Service saying Obama tripped.

Of course, it also works to have Sarah Palin decking Barack Obama herself!

Balls-on accurate, and why Obama has so much trouble trying to win the votes of Todd Palins across the Rust Belt.”

I am tired beyond words of the people who have never lived in anything but Washington or New York or Los Angeles looking down their noses at those of us who live in “small towns”.

They seem to prefer everything where no one knows anyone else, sort of a sea of anonomous souls who flow and drift against each other, with minimum responsibility for having real participation in events that surround them.
It is always “someone’s job” to take care of things. “Someone” is supposed to take care of crime and criminals, but no one “knows anything” when cops are trying to get witnesses. No one picks up a hose and tries to hold back a fire while waiting for the fire department. No one assists at the scene of an accident for a variety of reasons. No one pays attention to the swamping of the hospital services by illegal intruders until there is no hospital any more.

In a small town- we KNOW who alot of our neighbors are. We know who we can call on when we need some help...sick and need someone to feed the cattle or the horses and the dogs....and we know who will come with no crankiness. We know who the bad kids are, and we keep a closer eye on them. We also know who the really good kids are and alot of them are the recipients of “magical scholarships” that appear just when that kid needs to go past high school.
Raise the driving age to 17? to 18? Not a problem in the rural small towns where a kid has been driving a tractor and implements since they were old enough to reach all the gears and switches and showed the maturity that matched the needs of the farm or ranch their are raised on. By the time they are 16, they have often already had lots of time at the wheel of something. Statistics that are driving the idea to raise the driving age comes from the over-indulged kids of the suburbs whose parents give them way too many material things and way too little EARNED responsibility.
The sheriff and merchants in a small town know who they have to keep an eye on, and who needs some more growing.
Do small towns have problems?
Yes, and alot of it is imported from the suburbs. Drugs are contaminating them, and illegal intruder criminal elements are also using small towns as a base of operations, counting on the larger areas to hide in.

The elite attitude of big city people is really getting to be a sore point with alot of the voters from small towns. This might be an election where some voter backlash against all the demeaning remarks will come back in the form of votes for McCain and Palin.
I for onw would welcome the Palin family in my area.

Actually Todd is from the relatively low lands of Southwest Alaska at Bristol Bay (maybe that explains the name of one of their kids).

But I’d follow him into the mountains

Obama is the precise opposite of Mountain Man Todd Palin: an entirely urban creature. He lives within the hilarious conundrum of being both too "cosmopolitan" and intellectual for Republican tastes — at least as Rudy Giuliani described it — while also being the sort of fellow suspected of getting ahead by affirmative action.

Todd Palin isn't running for office. Why the comparison to the metrosexual Obama?

No mention of the "Man from Hope." Or the fact that we know so very little about Obama compared to others who have run for the Presidency. He is a "riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma."

And the really bad news for Obama is that millions of city and suburban-dwellers have serious small-town roots which they think of with a sort of reverence.

The absolute, hands down, most crushing problem for Obama is that he doesn't like most of what American life really is. Sure, he likes the college scene, and the prestige of office, and the restaurants, and the lifestyle he leads. But he clearly views that as being separate and different from the unwashed masses.

This innate dislike for the more pedestrian America has lead him into some dark corners. From Ayer's living room to Wrights chapel, Obama seeks out those who feel alienated from and vengeful towards the masses, and draws strength from their rage.

I'm not saying he doesn't love America, but he doesn't seem to care for Americans much at all.

Klein gives Eagleton too much credit—McGovern’s candidacy was doomed even before then. The only Democrat who might have given Nixon a run for his money was Muskie, and I suspect a Nixon vs. Muskie race would have been more like GHWB vs. Dukakis than like GWB vs. Kerry.

My thoughts exactly when I read that line. Klein has either a poor understanding of the political realities of 1972 or was too deep in a hallucinogenic fog to even remember. When a candidate loses every state, save one, there was a larger problem than choosing a poor VP running mate.

Nice rant. I believe one of the reasons shows like Deadliest Catch, Axe Men and Ice Road Truckers are so successful is that the natives of fly-over country have had it up to their eyeballs with what Hollyweird and NYC try to shove down our throats regarding what men should be. This is a backlash to the estrogenation of America. As far as Sarah goes I know about as many women hunters as men. Especially wing shooters. I will go in the field with them before I will go with some panty waist from LA who just bought his first shotgun and thinks pheasant hunting might be fun and then starts crying 2 hours into the day about how much work it is. The women only complain when hunting is bad due to lack of critters.

Right on all counts. I'd rather live on the outskirts of a small town than anywhere else. I'm a country boy originally, but I've spent most of my career in a medium-sized city (300K),lived for a while in a megacity (Houston), and have been in most of the other megacities at various times, including several in Europe. Thanks, but NO THANKS! Now I'm back in the country and have no plans to leave it.

Obama is the quintessential city-boy prig.

From the Klein piece:
“He lives within the hilarious conundrum of being both too “cosmopolitan” and intellectual for Republican tastes — at least as Rudy Giuliani described it — while also being the sort of fellow suspected of getting ahead by affirmative action.”

This is so typical of leftists. They immediately assume that being an intellectual implies intelligence. Sorry, I’ve worked in academia long enough to be sure that this isn’t even vaguely true.

Intellectual merely describes an area of focus. I know some brilliant people who don’t do intellectual pursuits. They don’t read a whole lot of books, nor do they banter about on philosophy or history. However they are some of the smartest people I’ve known. Just because they focus on being experts in, say, sports doesn’t have any bearing on their brain power.

Obama is a great example of this. He’s an intellectual. He bandies about his Ivy league credentials, and says the right references from the literature, but he doesn’t understand jack didly squat. His grasp of economics, history, or even the constitution are all laughable. This is from an alleged constitutional lawyer. He understands far less, even, of everyday life.

It’s pretty apparent to me he got by on Affirmative Action because his ability to comprehend complicated issues is next to nil.

Once again I am reminded of a very unpleasant thing--that the two parties seem to have switched worldviews from their origins (Klein's sneering reference to "Jefferson's yeoman farmer," the Original Democrat, really drives this home). And as I always remark, as a pure Republican (with roots in the Whig and Federalist parties, Hamiltonianism, and ultimately Puritanism) I am quite embarrassed by the implications.

The Democrat party began as a coalition of anti-federalists who had been opposed to the new Constitution because it gave the federal government too much power, and therefore they favored the next best thing: a strict construction of its text. Its original exemplar was, as noted, the Jeffersonian "yeoman farmer," who was succeeded in turn by the Jacksonian backwoodsman. These were the original Democrats, and they lived in, and sired the people who still live in, "fly-over country."

By contrast Alexander Hamilton, the great-grandfather of the Republican party, was an urban cosmopolitan. A rootless bastard born in the West Indies, his home was the big city which to him was not a symbol of decadence but of vitality. With accountant's ink for blood, he created Pat Buchanan's ultimate nightmare--the National Bank!!! (Ironic when one considers how Hamiltonian Buchanan is in his other views.)

Hamilton, and the Federalists, Whigs, and Original Republicans who succeeded him, believed in federal supremacy and loose construction of the Constitution (contrary to contemporary mythology, laissez faire was never the doctrine of American business, which has always been interventionist, but of Jeffersonian agrarianism). The "heartland" of Republicanism and its antecedents was the coasts--New England, California, and the Pacific Northwest. In the Election of 1896 it was the Coasts that voted for the conservative McKinley while the Bible-Belt Heartland was frothing at the mouth for the radical William Jennings Bryan.

The closest I can come to pinpointing the point at which all this changed was the New Deal, when Jefferson's Democrat party adopted Hamilton's interpretation of the Constitution (though one could say that the Bryanites had already done this) and Ivy League grads, formerly staunch Hamiltonians and McKinleyites, began to spy for the Soviet Union. And even here, the New Deal was king in the traditional Jacksonian areas. In fact, in the FDR landslide of 1936 the only states to go Republican were Maine and Vermont!

Nevertheless, the New Deal seems to have been the beginning of the reversal of ideologies and attitudes among the two parties. And as an unabashed and unashamed Hamiltonian, this fact gives me no joy whatsoever.
