Camille Paglia on how Democrats treated Gov. Palin:
Liberal Democrats are going to wake up from their sadomasochistic, anti-Palin orgy with a very big hangover. The evil genie released during this sorry episode will not so easily go back into its bottle. A shocking level of irrational emotionalism and at times infantile rage was exposed at the heart of current Democratic ideology — contradicting Democratic core principles of compassion, tolerance and independent thought. One would have to look back to the Eisenhower 1950s for parallels to this grotesque lock-step parade of bourgeois provincialism, shallow groupthink and blind prejudice.
Earlier this week I had a similar thought: If Obama really messes up in his first year, how many Americans will wake-up feeling the same way a man who gets drunk and has a one-night stand feels the following morning after he looks to see who’s sleeping on the other side of the bed? That is to say, will they wonder “What the hell was I thinking?”
