The title of this post is a quote of one of the more trenchant and humorous observations made by Charles Krauthammer in his article today, "The Great Peasant Revolt of 2010." The article is a bit of shooting fish in the barrel. Krauthammer uses his column to frame a truism, that the far left, in their boundless arrogance, view the average American as intellectualy challenged and heap upon those who object to their agenda charges of a nefarious motivation. It is a very enyoyable read. As Krauthammer concludes:
. . . No matter how far the ideological pendulum swings in the short term, in the end the bedrock common sense of the American people will prevail.
The ankle-dwelling populace pushes back. It recenters. It renormalizes. Even in Massachusetts.
