Roger Ebert Succumbs to Palin Derangement Syndrome

What makes this hilarious is this slob actually has the temerity to ridicule her choice of eyewear.


Soak in the smug pomposity. It doesn't get any more elitist, arrogant and snide than this. Just keep it up, Rog. You'll have much more venom to spew in a couple of months after Obama gets hammered.
You don't need to be a pointy-headed elitist to travel abroad. You need curiosity and a hunger to see the world. What kind of a person (who has the money) arrives at the age of 44 and has only been out of the country once, on an official tour to Iraq? Sarah Palin's travel record is that of a hopeless provincial.
Uh, maybe someone who's busy raising a family in Alaska and rising to the highest office her state, dipshit. She must be crushed she didn't have time to traipse around Europe with the sophisticated set. Poor Sarah.
But some people like that. She's never traveled to Europe, Asia, Africa, South America or Down Under? That makes her like them. She didn't go to Harvard? Good for her! There a lot of hockey moms who haven't seen London, but most of them would probably love to, if they had the dough. And they'd be proud if their kids won a scholarship to Harvard.

Palin is a shallow, chirpy person with those vaguely alarming eyeglasses. Now her fans all want a pair. Remember back when women wore glasses that departed their ears in plastic swoops and swirls? My theory is, anyone who wears glasses that look weird is telling me something I don't want to know.

I trust the American people will see through Palin's facade, and save the Republic in November. The most damning indictment against her is that she considered herself a good choice to be a heartbeat away. That shows bad judgment.
Such sanctimonious snobbery.

Please, keep it up.
