Christine Odonnell

Chris Rock had a joke about black anti-intellectualism that roughly went “those people are keeping it real. Yeah, real stupid!” One can’t help but think these days there is a creeping anti-intellectualism in some segments of white America.

The nation was originally founded on the aspirations of higher achievement. The dream that each generation would attain more than the last. Recall when people said with pride “I’m the first of my family to go to college.”

Seemingly, no longer from the fringes of white society. Faced with the rise of minority intelligence — be it on the left or the right — the “blame crowd” has no way to fight back other than to turn elitism into a pejorative. As though striving to be the best is in fact the worst of attributes. Delaware GOP-by-way-of-the-Tea-Party Senate nominee Christine O’Donnell spent her 17 minutes of speaking time at the “Values” Voters Summit attacking the ruling-class elites and the small elite and the beltway elite but came of sounding more like the angry kid not bright enough to make it as a Mathlete.

Text continues after gallery:

And, seemingly, she’s not smart enough to do a better job of covering her tracks with alleged campaign fund malfeasance.

But O’Donnell is more the victim of the fringes’ infatuation with witlessness.

Witness the inexplicably increasing adoration for Newt Gingrich whose greatest achievement was quitting as Speaker of the House.

Sarah Palin — whose greatest achievement was quitting as Governor of Alaska — bounced around five colleges in as many years before earning a Bachelor’s degree in communications… so that she could rail against the “elite media.”

The quintessence of the… I guess subpar media… being Glenn Beck.

Need I say more?
