Quote of the Day: Karen Hall on "Big City Bigots"
(Hat tip: Creative Minority Report)
Karen Hall at Some Have Hats writes:
I just watched an Obama Camp spokeswoman explain, with a look on her face like she just stepped in a cowpile, that Palin's only experience is that she has been a "part-time mayor of a town with a population of under 9,000."(emphasis added)
Gratefully, the reporter interviewing her pointed out that when Palin was working in such a meager position, Obama was a "community organizer" in Chicago. (And if Obama has experience running anything more complicated than his sock drawer, I'm still waiting for someone to tell me what it was.)
I'd just like to say, as a person who grew up in a town of 1,200 and was raised by the Vice-Mayor: Obama's elitist, condescending, small-town-bashing bigots can kiss my ignorant, gun-toting, Bible-clutching @ss.
I have a feeling that a lot of people living in small towns across America feel the same way, and then some. And correct me if I'm wrong (I'm only from a town of 1,200, you know) but aren't there a LOT of those small towns? And with the polls so close, does it really make sense for the Obama camp to keep insulting the people who live in them?
I don't know. I reckon I gotta git one of them smart people from the big city to 'splain it to me.
And as someone who grew up in a town of roughly 1,600, served as Mayor of a town of about 50, and currently resides in a small city of about 16,000, I'd just like to concur with Karen's sentiment.
The condescending elitists who are so dismissive of us "bitter" small-town folks who "cling" to God and guns will just never learn.
