McCain/Palin Claim: "Real Americans" Live in Small Towns; Rest of Us are Un-American

October 20, 2008

I host the Leslie Marshall show today for three hours. I’ll be talking about the strange claims of John McCain and Sarah Palin that “real Americans” live in small towns. They say that Democrats and those of us in cities and suburbs just aren’t pro-America. What are we, terrorists?
I also debunk the myth that ACORN is engaged in voting fraud and discuss Republican plans to disenfranchise voters across the country with my guest Brad Friedman.
Then on to the economy with the First Lesson of Economics 101: Why the Middle Class are the Engines of the Economy and not the Superrich.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

    Didn’t we already go through this exclusionist crap with the McCarthy-era–“pro-american”–what does that mean? (try defining that without using the word “america”)
    In real America nobody has a fuckin’ monopoly on the truth

    I don’t think McCain really believes that people in small towns are more “pro-American” than in big cities. That’s just campaign rhetoric, because people in small towns support him more.
