Real Americans

Here's this beautiful sad song by Guy Clark called Desparadoes Waiting for a Train.  

I can't help but to  think of Sarah Palin's "real Americans" when I hear this song. Imagine if you take her untrammeled, shameless bullshit and then examine its root as something authentic.  This is what you get. The romance of real America is a lot quieter than, say, shooting wolves out of helicopters.  Or at least I think so...
