Because Hating Happy, Normal People Makes Them Feel Smart

Leftist harbor a special venom for Sarah Palin, more incisive than other identifiable objects of their fixations and fears. S. E. Cupp writing in the New York Daily News plausits that Sarah Palin's happiness is what really irks liberals.

Liberalism, after all, needs to imagine an unhappy populace. Passing sweeping entitlement programs and convincing voters that big government is the answer only works if people are frustrated with their stations in life.
Of course there are always “the comments”, founded in reason, thoughtfulness, and so forth:
Oh, and one more comment Ms. Cupp. All of Sarah's smiling - it is my understanding that the village idiot is always smiling.
It's clear that hating happy, normal people makes him "feel smart."

It also validates the idea to themselves that they are apart and above others. It is a defense against the possibility of anyone you disagree with ever being right about anything. It is an inversion of the humanistic reasoning that the hater claims to have a monopoly on.
