Amy Sullivan has a great, brief history lesson in the roots of evangelical anti-elitism and how every time Sarah Palin complains about how the elites persecute her, she is tapping into a well-worn trope of evangelical history. Sullivan draws a striaght line from H.L. Mencken's coverage of the Scopes trial to Palin's rants today. It is a must-read.
