From The Corner:

But I think the Democrats have so internalized the enlightened vs. redneck narrative that they aren’t even phased by the cognitive dissonance of deploying it in Massachusetts.

Case in point: a (very dear, it should be noted) friend of mine who serves as a junior-level appointee in one of Obama’s cabinet departments wrote me to say he is taking the afternoon off to “call for Coakley.”

“I’m not sure how this is going to turn out,” he said. “But I refuse to let the tea-bagging hordes win this seat without a fight.”

Ah, yes, the dread tea-bagging hordes of Williamstown, the roving bands of mouth-breathing anarco-hooligans waging a campaign of terror that stretches from Amherst to Cambridge, from Andover to Wellesley…

Dread Tea-Bagging Hordes of Williamstown? I love it! This is my favorite Eph-related political phrase since “Limp-wristed” as applied to trustee Robert Scott ’68.

What is your favorite Eph-related example of political rhetoric?
