What the looney right doesn't get

In the new Club for Growth ad, a farmer says, "Howard Dean should take his tax-hiking, government-expanding, latte-drinking, sushi-eating, Volvo-driving, New York Times-reading ...," as his wife finishes, "... Hollywood-loving, left-wing freak show back to Vermont, where it belongs!"

On of the reasons I blanch at being labeled a conservative is the total lack of realism or sophistication in some conservatives views of liberals and of their fellow conservatives. Latte sipping is the name of a column Jeremy Lott has at the American Spectator. Sushi eating, hello! It's common as dirt throughout middle America. This is simply silly. And it speaks to the fear of any sort of change which infects a certain sort of social conservative, finger waggling, mentality. If latte sipping and eating raw fish are evil, it is simply impossible to imagine what these folks must think of homosexual marriage or legalizing marijuana.
