The latest fake insider/whistleblower is Kathleen Parker, the Barry Lynn of the South. Fresh off her mainstream media tour as a Sarah Palin-hating “conservative,” Parker is now a self-proclaimed Southerner blaming opposition to Obama’s policies on the region’s reputed racism.

Uncannily, this claim struck a chord with Northern liberals!…

Any crackpot can put forward lunatic theories. What gives Parker’s slanderous claim punch is her repeated assertion that she’s a Southerner, so she’s giving us the inside dope. To make sure no one misses the point, Parker issues repeated professions — “that’s what we do in the South,” “I am down there,” and “I live there, OK?”

Despite the implication that this Daughter of the Confederacy was virtually homecoming queen at Ole Miss, Parker was born and raised in Winter Haven, Fla. She married a South Carolinian and now splits her time between South Carolina and Washington, D.C…

If Parker is a Southerner because she grew up in Winter Haven, then I should be the next spokesman for Gorton’s of Gloucester because I grew up in Fairfield County, Conn. I’ll pose in rain gear at the wheel of my ship, dispensing flinty, down-home Yankee wisdom — “Ya cand get theh from heah” — just like most natives of New Canaan, Conn.
