Electable

This American Spectator article says much of what I've been thinking but can't say as eloquently and informatively.
It's about this election and the schism on the "right".
He sees it, as I do, between people who think they are the ruling class and the rest of us. The people who went to the right schools and the people who didn't.
I did not know this
quote
Willing to nominate her for the Senate when Castle didn't have the nerve to take on Biden directly (losing is never a winner with some), now that the seat is open she is being given the bum's rush.

Get that? She was okay as a sacrificial lamb, but let's not let our golden haired "electable" candidate lose.
So what do our political betters have to say about her?
quote
 In the words of the Journal editorial, O'Donnell is a "two-time loser statewide" and "an itinerant conservative commentator and activist."

That's right, she's been out there trying and she wasn't too crazy to run before, but now we're seeing the attacks the GOP, they're even siccing the FEC on her.
Scumbags.
They have more contempt for me than I could ever possibly have for them.

Back to the Spectator,
He talks about and quotes a book called The Ruling Class by Angelo Codevilla
quote
Says Codevilla: "… in fact Republican and Democratic office holders and their retinues show a similar presumption to dominate and fewer differences in tastes, habits, opinions, and sources of income among one another than between both and the rest of the country. They think, look, and act as a class."

And Bingo was his name-o.
He starts the whole thing off off by saying he's leary of going against the Journal's editorial page and NRO (NRO lost me with the way they went after Palin) but then does just that.
Quote (directly relating this passage to the Journal's Ed page and NRO)
Like a fraternity, this class requires above all comity -- being in with the right people, giving the required signs that one is on the right side, and joining in and despising the Outs.

B-I-N-G-O and Bingo was was name-o.
Now, I know I get worked up over silly stuff sometimes, but this attitude that they "know better" bothers me.
Especially given that they so obviously don't.
RTWT, I've only touched on the first of 4 pages.
H/T? Eh, I think Hot Air headlines. I saw it a few days ago and emailed it to myself without the h/t.

Exit question: What would have happened in NJ if there had been an "electable' alternative to Christie?
