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.

-Sarah Palin, 10/17/2008 (Greensboro, North Carolina)

Ah-ha! So it turns out that, in addition to primarily containing a lazy, unpatriotic and anti-American citizenry, urban areas are not the real America.

Please make a note of it.

It's OK to be a crazed, patriotic religious zealot who secretly wishes freedom of speech didn't exist, as long as it's in America. And you believe in the Baby Jesus.

I confess, whenever I hear anyone describe something with the words "what I like to call _____", I lose a little bit of respect for them. I'm not sure why.

As much blatant and predictable fail as that sentence is, I actually find the implication of an America-specific multiverse pretty entertaining.

... You know, I think I kind of do too. It's like, not only have they made up this name for it, but they straight-out admit that it's just a name they themselves came up with. And I always feel faintly embarrassed for people who make up their own ways of referring to things and stubbornly use them even after they've already proven they will never catch on with anyone else.

My favorite is the mirror-America, where everyone has goatees...

See, exactly.

I gave my Mii a goatee once, I think.

Don't forget that people who live in cities don't 'work hard'.

I have yet to hear Palin's position on U.S. Americans, though.

HAHA, OH MY GOD, I SAW THAT. I love how the guy was like "--Let me just give you a chance to realize what damn fool thing you just said and retreat a little" and she's all "FULL SPEED AHEAD, BITCHES."

That was pretty amazing.

Also, yeah - Palin has been pretty much nothing but *facepalm* since the beginning. Sometimes I wonder if this isn't a ploy by McCain at all, and in actuality a giant social experiment to see how many women actually will vote based purely on gender (or maybe how many men will vote for the boobs).

After an initial surge in women saying they planned to vote Republican, the numbers have rapidly dropped off. For the most part, only men still like her. ♥

But what about Oklahoma City? Does that count as little America or horrible urban America? Maybe horrible urban America with little America views?
Isn't that really just another word for racist and close-minded? Or does she mean the sophisticated, adorable little America? If that's the case, I don't think any of Oklahoma counts. We let dogs eat babies.

jesus I know right? I mean, when I think of what small towns have that big cities don't, the first things that come to mind are "homophobic," "racist," "ignorant," and "uneducated."
and "canned hunting."

but that's because i'm a bitch.
