Palin's Mind-Numbing Populism

Palin's Mind-Numbing Populism

Palin's continued criticism and Joe Miller attitude toward the media should concern anyone who understands the Constitutional importance of a free press.
George Mason, the father of Virginia's bill of rights wrote,

"the Freedom of the Press is one of the greatest Bulwarks of Liberty, and can never be restrained but by despotic Governments."

Palin talks about the Constitution and American greatness but she has no understanding that the things she shows contempt for are enshrined within the Constitution. A United States with no religious test and a free press is something she continues to fight against.

She likes the shallow waters where she thinks the majority splashes around in.
Once again her mind-numbing populism attacking the intellectual. Her lack of curiosity and cognitive work is a source of pride for her because she is betting that the majority are as shallow as herself. Palin does not believe in American exceptionalism she believes Americans are unexceptional and will fall for her anti-intellectual tribalism.
