Interesting Quote: Moose Mess Palin

"We believe that the best of America is not all in Washington, D.C. We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard working very patriotic, um, very, um, pro-America areas of this great nation. This is where we find the kindness and the goodness and the courage of everyday Americans. Those who are running our factories and teaching our kids and growing our food and are fighting our wars for us. Those who are protecting us in uniform. Those who are protecting the virtues of freedom."

Sweetie, those areas are not pro America, they are examples of where America failed. Ignorance is on tap in these areas. They harbor the failures of education, common sense, information, critical thinking, and the respect for the common man. We should be ashamed of these areas, because they are the thorns in our bed of roses.

The best of America in my nsho happens to be in the cities of the West Coast and the Northeast U.S.

The rest of it is butt fucking ignorant.

Maybe that's got something to do with the level of education I've mentioned in the leading paragraph. Both the regions I mentioned are regions rich in academia and culture.

The rest of the U.S. is truly flyover country. I've been as far out as the line that's between Chicago and Dallas. I have to say the best people are right here in the Northeastern U.S. You could probably attest to the West coastal people better than I.

You forget that these days even the biggest bigots are calling themselves a "real" American.
