Powerline: Lebedoff on Why Kerry Lost

Take the time to read this post. The Powerline guys take several salient excerpts from Lebedoff's book, The Uncivil War, and review them in light of the presidential campaign.

The general thesis: what Lebedoff calls the New Elite -- I'm imagining humanities majors from the highly selective colleges living on either coast -- harbor disdain for majority rule, believing instead in government by experts. This most clearly manifests itself in the New Elite's reliance on the judicial branch (that is, activist judges) to implement social policy.

In other words, their campaign theme: Let the "smart" people run the country, and everything will be better.

No wonder they lose.
