Recently Sarah Palin said something along the lines of:
We should support ____________ because more and more ____________ in the days and weeks and months ahead.
The issue she was talking about was settlements in Israel, and Yglesias thinks
it's an End Times kind of thinking. (The full quote is "More and more Jewish people will be flocking to Israel in the days and weeks and months ahead".)
But while it may be a component of her thinking, there is still this standout element:
"in the days and weeks ... ahead"
Days and weeks ahead? That's not Millennial thinking at all. It's casual-lazy thinking. Which is her signature.
Can you imagine the following discussion at Intel:
We should build a new billion-dollar facility to manufacture a higher-speed computer chip because more and more people will want a faster laptop in the days and weeks ahead.
