Palinism of the Day: 79% of America is Fake and Hates America

“We believe that the best of America is in the small towns that we get to visit, and in the wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard-working, very patriotic, very pro-America areas of this great nation. This is where we find the kindness and the goodness and the courage of everyday Americans.”

Sarah Palin, October 17 2008

You know, 79 percent of Americans live in urban areas.

I’d like Sarah Palin to explain her theory that 79% of America is fake, lazy, is unpatriotic, hates America, is unkind and no good. After all, this may call for some sort of preemptive military action.

    Well, small towns and citites are also urban areas, so when she talks about visiting small town america, then she is talking about a subset of urban dwellers.

    Of course many of them are also less educated, more insular, reactionary, and liable to have a distorted worldview that seems to have stopped somewhere around the late fifties, early sixties. Well maybe the seventies at the latest.

    I guess if you want to live in such a time warp, they would be just the place.

    Once again, Palin opens mouth and inserts foot…McCain needs to put a muzzle on her! To suggest that some parts of America are more “Pro American” than others is ludicrous. And she really needs to let go of the ACORN thing,the Ayers thing as if she’s got a lily white reputation! For such a devout “christian” she really is behaving very un-christian like in my book.

    No, no, I’d say exactly the opposite. She should keep right on talking. That’s the great thing about free speech — we get more information out there, including information about Sarah Palin!

    Ms. Palin is a graduate of the foot-in-mouth sachool of public speaking, who’s method is described as:

    1. Smile.

    2. Open Mouth WIDE.

    3. Insert foot.

    4. Close mouth.

    5. Begin to talk.

    6. Extract foot.

    7. Wink.

    8. Smile.

    9. Buys new shoes

    10.Starts process again.
