"Joe Six Pack"

Oh my gosh, this is the best analysis of the Middle Class that I've read, by copperwise.

Thank you, Sarah Palin, for getting the liberals thinking and writing about the nonsense you spouted last night.

Best,
Chris

Yeah. The guys I was watching with last night at the bar shouted, "Drink!" every time she said

NUKE-U-LER

Must've been a pretty tipsy group by the time the show was done.

Geez, we couldn't drink fast enough.

Oddly, MSNBC got hacked (or its satellite died) 3/4 of the way through the debate.

Hm. I don't know what station we were watching. So you didn't get to see the end?

Oh, so *that's* the Drinking Game Word. Sister was wondering. She thought it would be, "You betcha!"

The drinking game I saw included many other phrases that she used. Over and over and over.

I was the only one of us to win at Palin BINGO. The Bingo format allowed for unregulated drinking while still providing some diversion from her annoying voice/presence/fact of existence.

Thanks, Chris. That's very kind.

It really makes me hopeful, reading the comments to the post. I've only had two comments from people who seem to believe that the middle class are exactly who "they" believe we are, and aren't offended by the implications in the term Joe Six-Pack. They *were* offended by my pointing out the implications. Granted, most of the people linking this are going to be linking it to other like-minded people, but since I haven't gotten any death threats yet, I think it's a decent indication of how many people there are who don't see middle America as a bunch of ignorant rubes.
