Via Elizabeth Holmes's pool report, Juliet Eilperinhas a chock-full write-up from Palin's remarks at a North Carolina fundraiser, including the GOP veep candidate: noting that her campaign staff discourages her from watching television coverage of the race, thanking God for the Republican ticket's improving poll numbers, good-naturedly complaining about having to mention "Joe the Plumber," and telling the Greensboro crowd that she enjoys being in the "pro-America" parts of the country.

I actually don't see an equivalence in the actual two statements. The clear implication of Palin's statement is that there are areas of this country that are anti-American, very much questioning their patriotism. Obama's statement was that people in small towns have been taken advantage of by politicians who've gotten them to vote on wedge issues in an attempt to distract them from the ones that directly effect their everyday lives. You can disagree with the validity of that charge, but it's not anywhere near Palin's statement.

The idea that a politician running for one of the highest offices in the land would stand at a podium and accuse parts of our country of being worse than others is kinda crazy.

10-17-2008, 01:05 PM
HAHA the McCain campaign now is having to clarify that Palin didn't mean to offend the rest of America.

In the process they offended people that live in large cities and in suburbs


"We believe that the best of America is not all in Washington, D.C. We believe" -- here the audience interrupted Palin with applause and cheers -- "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."

To Avoid Being 'Depressed,' Palin Skimps on Campaign News

By Juliet Eilperin
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- No wonder GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin harbors such hostility toward the mainstream media: her staff imposes limits on her access to it.

During a fundraiser here that raised $800,000 last night, Palin admitted that her aides often dissuade her from tuning into televised coverage of the presidential campaign.

"So North Carolina, I appreciate you all so much, who are here who already get it. You know, maybe I'm preaching to the choir a little bit here, but being here encourages me because I know that I'm not alone and I'll send this message back to John McCain also. At those times on the campaign trail when sometimes it's easy to get a little bit discouraged, when, you know, when you happen to turn on the news when your campaign staffers will let you turn on the news," she said, prompting laughter from the group. "Usually they're like 'Oh my gosh, don't watch. You're going to, you know, you're going to get depressed.'"

She added that while she doesn't always appreciate the way reporters portray the GOP ticket, she's been bolstered by the prayers of many of the campaign's backers.

"But yeah, sometimes you do get depressed watching what it is that they're reporting and the spin and some of the distortion of what our message is and what we stand for. Sometimes that, that gets draining," she continued. "But it's at events like these and our rallies that we are so energized and inspired and we know that we are not alone. We feel your strength and we feel the power of prayer, so many of you tell us that you are praying for us and praying for our country and that's why we so appreciate you being here."

Giving credit to a higher power for the day's poll ratings, the Alaska governor told the roughly 500-person audience that things might be changing. "We even saw today, thank the Lord," she said, looking upwards and raising her fist, "We saw some movement."

Palin has continued to shun the national print and television journalists who follow her on a daily basis, instead courting local reporters and Republican-affiliated journalists. Today she did short interviews with reporters from Bangor, Me., as well as Greensboro and Raleigh, N.C., along with a 15-minute session with Weekly Standard reporter Fred Barnes.

But Palin paid homage to one new mainstream media star -- Joe Wurzelbacher, the plumber John McCain repeatedly referred to during Wednesday night's debate. The Alaska governor mentioned Joe the plumber during both her public rallies yesterday, but she confessed at the fundraiser that even she was sick of mentioning him. Then she proceeded to talk about him at length.

"And I, I begged our speech writers, 'Don't make me say 'Joe the Plumber,' please, in any speeches.' And I was asked, 'Just one time, just at this fund raiser,'" she recounted. "Just make sure people understand that we know what Joe the Plumber was talking about when he was confronting Barack Obama and saying, 'Wait a minute, aren't you going to take my money, take my earnings and give it to somebody else who maybe hadn't worked as hard as I have worked?'"

"What about this reward for strong work ethic, isn't that what capitalism is all about? Isn't that what the American economy should be based upon? And so when I mention Joe the Plumber, know that that's why I do mention it. Because we understand what his concerns were as he spoke to Barack Obama there in that rope line," she added. "We will be working for Joe the Plumber and working for the small business owners and those who wish to own business, those who have that entrepreneurial spirit and want to grow business and create jobs, hire more people and take care of their families. And with millions of American struggling to sustain a small business right now, I hope that business owners especially across this great nation are paying very, very close attention to the differences in the candidates."

Palin also made a point of mentioning that she loved to visit the "pro-America" areas of the country, of which North Carolina is one. No word on which states she views as unpatriotic.

An obvious candidate might be California -- a state Palin has campaigned in -- because, as she told the audience, she and McCain have encountered problems enlisting famous performers in their cause.

"In fact, we were on the bus today, we were making a list of who are some celebrity singers who could come out and help us and gosh, for the life of us, the pickins were slim there," she said. "Who's quasi-conservative out there in the celebrity land?"

Palin proceeded to then thank country singers Hank Williams Jr. and Lee Greenwood for appearing on her behalf: Greenwood had belted out "God Bless the USA" at her rally in Bangor, Me., yesterday morning, while Williams sang his "McCain-Palin Tradition" tune in the afternoon in Elon, N.C.

Are you intentionally being obtuse, or is your reading comprehension skills simply absent today; no one I'm aware of, except for her detractors, have ever used the term anti-American. Am I wrong?

She's simply saying some areas of the country are very patriotic; nothing about other parts being "unpatriotic" or "anti-American." If you wish to interpret them as, some are "un-patriotic" or "anti-American" than others....fine; but that's NOT what she said. Even though, if that's what she intended, I'd still agree with.

Her statements on the flight today pretty much reinforced what I'm saying; of course, I'm sure that many won't be hearing that clarification, or buying it anyway. Whatever.

A Logical inference. Therefore it has nothing to do with "reasonableness".

Modus tollens

A --> B

~B
______________

~B ---> ~A

Where I am (or places like it) is (are) "pro America"

Berkeley (or places like it) are not where I am (or where I will go).

In real America, we place a higher priority and emphasis on reasonable rather than logical.

Logical is for fools; reasonable is for the common folk. ;)

Uh, ok. Well I guess if logic is out the window today, we can pretty much say what we want then, right?

The difference is Obama SAID....small town America clings to religion and guns; Palin ONLY said rural NC is Patriotic America---she didn't say Big City America is Anti-America/Unpatriotic.

On insecure idiots would infer that from her statement, IMHO. :shrug:If you are so right, why is the McCain backing off her statement and reinterpreting it?

“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.”
