The Palin Effect

By Hugh Hewitt

Sarah Palin has come under another round of attacks from Manhattan-Beltway media elites, and they are growing increasingly shrill. Now Saturday Night Live is, quite predictably, portraying Governor Palin as a God-crazed dumb-as-a-box-of-bricks small town mom, demonstrating again the entertainment industry's love of their customer base. New York columnist Frank Rich appears positively unhinged by Palin--as do many others.

No matter. Every attack only deepens the affection and admiration felt by the vast majority of Americans of every political stripe--except those living in the mega cities on the water's edge. Rarely has the cultural divide in this country been so completely exposed, and big media's allegiances to the left side of that divide more obvious--perhaps now more than ever.
