Comment of the century"

From Brent:

I have been reading comments from conservatives for days now that say something like "all you elitist liberals are underestimating her and you're gonna pay the price for that." Whenever I see that I try to get some specifics about what exactly liberals are doing that would constitute an underestimation of Palin and on every single occasion, I get no serious response at all. A lot of conservatives seem to be operating along the lines of a meta-narrative that has almost nothing to do with what liberals are actually saying. I am not sure yet whether that is a deliberate strategy or simple delusion.
