Is Sarah Palin one of us?

There was enthusiasm for two people in the 2008 Presidential election: Barack Obama and Sarah Palin. But while Obama was praised for his pragmatism by the intelligentsia (of both sides), Palin was savaged for her "inexperience".

Who is "one of us", and who isn't? Who defines the answer to that question, and what does it mean? Thomas Sowell nails it.
