You know what gets me angry?  It's watching Sarah Palin talk about how she is a real American.  By her definition myself and more than half of the country must be fake Americans.

She runs around this great nation in her new 150 thousand dollar wardrobe with that shrill, nasal toned voice of hers, talking incessantly about how small town, moose shootin', hockey moms like her are the real Americans.  God help us if McCain gets elected and doesn’t live to finish his term and that piece of work Mrs. Palin becomes the president.

Well Mrs. Palin, I was born and raised in Niagara Falls, N.Y. I came up through public schools; I drive a Chevy - one that was actually made in America. I drink beer; I pay taxes; and I work 2 jobs in order to barely squeak through each month.  I have actually read the Constitution. 

So don’t tell me I am not a real American, and don’t tell my friends who served their country and shed their blood in Viet Nam, and who are Democrats, that they are not real Americans.  Don’t call my activist friends who watch and report when all you crooked politicians take money from corporate lobbyists.  Your campaign of half truths and outright lies, I hope, will come back to show you what the real Americans think of you.

My friends are white, black, Christian, Muslim, liberal, conservative, pro-choicer, and community organizers and free thinkers and that, Mrs. Palin, in your world is Anti-American.  Apparently in your view the only real Americans are the ones who show up for your rallies.

What is really un-American, Mrs. Palin, is people like you who  would divide us and enrich your war profiteering pals, practicing policies that have bankrupted this country and involved us in foreign occupations while letting the plotters of 9/11 escape into Pakistan.

It is you, Mrs. Palin, and your so-called maverick running mate who don’t under stand what makes this country great.  It is the wonderful diversity of our people and the realization that no one group is more American than the next.

What unifies real Americans, Mrs. Palin, is our belief that American values should work for the common good of all Americans, and those who would try to separate us from that unifying bond are the real enemies of America.  So Mrs. Palin, it is you and your maverick running mate who need to get real.

Peace and Liberty through intelligence, strength, and integrity.
