Elizabeth WarrenElizabeth Ann WarrenBipartisan group of lawmakers aim to reform US sugar program Schumer: Dems want DACA fix in government spending bill The Hill interview — DNC chief: I came here to win elections MORE went up against the winged monkeys a week ago when she referred to herself as a hick, commenting on her Harvard association and how that might alienate the Fenway public. She called herself an “elite hick” and the cries of pain went up from the hick anti-defamation league. The Wonderful Whites of West Virginia were particularly offended.

But that is precisely how she got here. Warren in the anti-Palin conjured here in New England to defend against the rising life-force of the heartland these past two years; since February, 2009, precisely, when New Hampshire state Rep. Dan Itse first challenged Obamacare on a Jeffersonian (Kentucky Resolutions) defense and 29 states followed suit. All red states, all hicks.

The rise of Grizzly Mama brought them together and brought shock and awe to the unbearably light sensibilities of the Nantucket eloi.

Like Palin, Warren seems to be made of stronger stuff.

Raised in hardscrabble Oklahoma, she brought heartland to Harvard Yard. A waitress during college, she worked her way through like the best of us. Like Sarah Palin.

Warren shouldn’t back away from claims that she framed the Occupy movement. As Cavuto said to Rick Perry on Tuesday, “You sound like the Occupy crowd.” As Perry was the first governor, back in December 2008 — the Bush period — to publicly oppose and opposition then when in Virginia calls against came in 10 to one as those of Occupy now.

But before we had Palin we had Jim Webb of Virginia who, when Mark WarnerMark Robert WarnerBipartisan group of lawmakers aim to reform US sugar program The Hill interview — DNC chief: I came here to win elections Virginia's governor race: What to watch for MORE was governor, first brought anti-Wall Street rural rustification to contemporary politics.

A tobacco-chewing, gun-toting, proud-to-be-Scots-Irish warrior novelist from the way-far hills and hollows of westernmost Virginia.

But the country wasn’t ready to start again, and the best of the new Democrats like Wesley Clark and the old like Russ Feingold were passed over as the Democrats wasted away again in Hillaryland.

They/we may be ready now; ready to begin again with Elizabeth Warren.

This is the second time rustification has happened in America. The first after the Colonial period when the east rusticated to defend against Andrew Jackson. Prediction for this time: If Herman Cain is elected president in 2012, Elizabeth Warren will be elected in 2016.
