Palin and elitism

Palin rumor list here.

Megan McArdle on Palin here.

Both links emphasize the elitist / east coast versus non-elitist / rural west theme. I'll confess, I find elitist types tiring, though by most definitions other than my own, I am surely an elitist type myself. I rant about Cambridge Attitudinal Disorder (CAD) on occasion but my consumption patterns look, I am sure, much more like Obama's and Biden's than either McCain's or (especially) Palin's. In America, no one wants to be the elitist, and maybe that is not such a bad thing.
