We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The difference is the Palin is poorly educated but Obama was aggressively maleducated. Palin is ignorant of many things; Obama firmly believes in nonsense. There is hope for Palin, who still can learn a thing or two. Obama's brain is too damaged to learn.
I think the Palin book is more payback than fact. Seems the McCain camp never liked Palin and since they lost and it can't be their guy's fault then its Palin's. I think Palin is taking the time now to read up on some of this stuff. She may not be the next Reagan but she is someone to pay attention to.
Bob Sykes ...Define for me 'poorly educated' when it is applied to a woman with a baccalaureate degree. I have one myself, and I feel quite 'educated' after a long lifetime of continuing to learn, based on the foundation I got from my college education. Palin may be ignorant in some things, but then, so are you, if you jump to conclusions without sufficient evidence. Cheap shots, created no doubt by your own envy and ignorance about Mrs. Palin's actual life, should be beneath you.
As for you, Leag, give it a rest, or I'll have to assume you are even more ignorant than your spelling and sentence construction tell me you are. MM
Leag ... Still struggling, I see. As far as my 'nescient assumptions' are concerned, you seem to have made up a new word. Congratulations. Or were you perhaps trying to combine 'nascent' [newborn] with 'prescient' [endowed with foreknowledge]. That could work. But it will take awhile for it to be accepted by the OED.
Me be pleased helpin' over eddicated idiots round the globe.
I spent seven years married to a nescient woman who was proud of her English degree from University of Michigan during which time me did me horn toad best to teach the English language so it is not much of a chore to help yer hide out abit, if'n yall's husband don't mind.
Does he know where yall, are playing today?
Anyhoo, "nascient assumptions" is actually two (2) words but yall may find a definition of nascient @ http://www.thefreedictionary.com/nescient
