When in Alaska, Do as The Alaskans Do........ Then you haven't seen what you're not missing. People are funny, I dismiss Palin as pushy, pain in the a** b****. Still, she was elected Governor of Alaska, so I suppose she has "charisma", although I can't fathom why. She can't run her own household, we're supposed to "ignore" that. I live in Philly, and she got booed last night at the Flyers game. So to the upside, I guess you really can't, "fool all the people all the time". I should qualify the "got booed" statement. Due to Philadelphia's demographics and party affiliation, Obama will likely pull 70% of our vote. So, you can just imagine how, even at a hockey game, she wasn't warmly received. Here's where definition gets dicey. If you choose not to seek out, or avoid gaining knowledge by decision or omission, then you're probably stupid as well. The colloquial definition of "ignorant" as being rude or ill mannered is likely powered by stupidity or laziness as well, since if you had the ambition or desire, you'd want to know how to act. In my own defense, I know how to act, I simply avoid doing it the accepted way.
