Having fun with Philip Klein — whose pre-emptive doubts about Sarah Palin show that he is quite obviously not a real American — I noticed that Hot Air‘s Allahpundit (also often accused of inauthenticity for doubting Palin) re-Tweeted this message from his friend:
I just hope you supporters of Brown, once he is elected, remember your support when you’re calling him RINO (or worse)
That would be Massachusetts Senate candidate Scott Brown, whose online “money-bomb” fundraiser Monday reportedly raised $1.3 million. In the interest of clarifying why many pro-Palin conservatives are enthusiastically supporting an un-Palin candidate like Brown, consider the following arguments:
Therefore, despite Brown’s centrist politics, the pro-Palin populists support his Massachusetts Senate campaign because (a) Brown’s election would not be a leftward shift of either the national debate or the GOP; (b) his election would validate perceptions of a rising conservative mood among voters; and (c) if elected, Brown would go to Washington with the knowledge of his indebtedness to grassroots conservatives.
Arguments between elitists and populists are inevitable, but there is no cause for an argument here — unless those effete intellectual snobs want to start one, in which case I’m sure the real Americans are ready to duke it out.
