Man, I thought those Palin-bashers who didn’t know when the Boston Tea Party occurred took the hate cake.
I was wrong.
Here’s the errrrrrudite liberal journo Richard Wolffe mocking Sarah Palin for citing famed, beloved Christian author, novelist, lay theologian, and apologist C.S. Lewis as a source of divine inspiration (via The Daily Caller):
Incredibly, Wolffe derides the author of “Mere Christianity,” “The Abolition of Man,” “The Screwtape Letters,” and so many other seminal works as merely a writer of “a series of kids’ books” in order to jab at Palin.
Fellow Palin-basher Chris Matthews tried to save Wolffe from himself by counseling him not to “put down” Lewis. Wolffe ignored him.
When I think of Wolffe and his smug media peers in the intellectual establishment, I think of Lewis’s brilliant musings on Men Without Chests.
He had them pegged.

Brian Faughnan called Wolffe out on Twitter. Here was his response. Seriously:
She said “divine inspiration”. Not the traditional reaction to theological essays, even formidable ones by Lewis.
And here’s a reminder again of Wolffe said on MSNBC:
WOLFFE: “Look, divine inspiration from a series of KIDS’ BOOKS. I don’t think, um, C.S. Lewis really would want that.”
MATTHEWS: “But…I wouldn’t put down C.S. Lewis down…”
Wolffe sputters about Newsmax, which Palin says she reads, before again hitting at Palin for — gasp! — drawing religious lessons from a profoundly religious author.
