Laugh of the Day

It's a cynical, snide laugh, but a laugh none the less at Andrew Sullivan haughtily applying the double standard where Sarah Palin is concerned:

I find the notion that class snobbery is behind it to be silly. It's hard not to note the Judge Judy atmosphere that permeates Palinland, but some of us weren't born into privilege at all and simply expect minimal standards of effort, intelligence and integrity in public officials who come from nowhere.

Emphasis mine.

If only Sullivan had applied the same standard to Barack Obama. Now there's a public official born into privilege who needs to meet minimal standards of effot, intelligence and integrity.
