One of Them and One of Us

This is the title to Patrick Buchanan's latest article, in which he writes about Barack Obama and Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin is one of us, a poor women unjustly attacked by the mavens of political correctness. Barak Obama is one of them, a liberal, ivy-league, affirmative action guy.

That's why criticisms of Sarah Palin's experience are totally beyond the pale, while criticisms of Obama's are completely useful. She's one of us; he's one of them.

That's why the mild discussion of family values in the wake of her daughters situation is a horrid travesty, while constant harping on Obama's "un-American" wife are totally acceptable. She's one of us; he's one of them.

For the record, I'm pretty sure that despite my lack of an Ivy League education, I'm also one of them.
