Why the Left Hates Sarah Palin

Here are 3 insightful takes on the subject:

  1. Victor Davis Hanson
  2. Robin from Berkeley
  3. Evan Sayet
To be clear, there's nothing wrong with not liking Palin or not supporting her running for POTUS one day, but what's occurring in the hearts & minds of many Leftists is MUCH more than mere dislike.  The second article above provides a very plausible theory:
People on the Left hate Palin for one simple reason: because she is everything they are not.  She is their polar opposite because her life journey has diverged from the prescribed liberal path. Palin was raised to be self-sufficient and independent since "idle hands are the devil's tools."  Little Sarah was up at the crack of dawn, hunting with her dad; in sharp contrast, liberal kids like me were still fast asleep.

It is like some sort of psych test. Which right wing figure is this particular leftist have the most angst for.

Curiously, I am amazed that the left does not realize that Sarah Palin just might not be the nominee in the 2012 election.

They are wasting their powder; firing too early and, it seems, to far.
