"Yes! Someone called me a redneck woman once and you know what I said back? I said, 'Why thank you.’"
- Sarah Palin
I guess that's a part of being "a real American."
The term redneck used to be a negative, but now is a source of rural and southern pride. However, the term to many means 'white trash'... uneducated, ignorant and bigoted. Southern comedian Jeff Foxworthy who made a career out of the humor of redneck culture defines it as "a glorious lack of sophistication."
Whatever. I could say something cynical but I'll just note that it was the states with the least educational attainment that put Bush in the White House twice... we can see how well that turned out. Let's not repeat.
In addition, a McCain campaign source said Palin is "going rogue"
"She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone. She does not have any relationships of trust with any of us, her family or anyone else. Also, she is playing for her own future and sees herself as the next leader of the party. Remember: Divas trust only unto themselves, as they see themselves as the beginning and end of all wisdom."
Sounds like a self-righteous sociopath on a mission from god. Make that a redneck self-righteous sociopath...
