I think it is very easy to be prejudiced against people from Alaska. If you are a true Alaskan, you learn your survival skills early on, or you don't survive.
The rest of us who live in more temperate regions can't fathom what it must be like to live in Alaska. The Northern Great Plains states have tough winters as well, but they also have their summers.
My point is I've been enlightened by Pastor Wright and his sermon on how white America can accept John F Kennedy's accent, but not accept a black persons accent and instead will mock it, (although white people do mock New Yawkers and so on, sorry to discredit you, Pastor Wright).
But where is Pastor Wright now that we need him to defend Sarah Palin and where she comes from? Where is the Reverend Wright to explain to us how the Alaska environment might refocus a person's learning curve to one of survival, which in turn might make it look like such a person is less knowledgeable on certain topics, especially to media snobs such as Olberman and media wanna be snob Maddow.
It is clear that Palin is a smart bird who can learn more in a minute then others will learn in an hour, too bad the smug political left will ignore the truth and attempt to tarnish the second coming of Barack Obama, also known as Sarah Palin.
