First Redneck on a National Ticket?

Is it possible that Sarah Palin is the first redneck on a national party ticket? That she is a redneck, I believe Jeff Foxworthy would agree.

"If your husband is a world champion snowmobiler, you might be a redneck." (I refuse to use the term "snowmachiner.")

"If your children are named Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper, and Trig, then you might be a redneck."

"If your pastor preaches that we're in the end times, then you might be a redneck."

The big question is whether there has ever been a redneck on a national ticket before. There could be an argument that LBJ was a redneck. But he never, to my knowledge, wore a flag bikini.

Update: The photo is a fake, of course. But there's some funny stuff where I found it. Link.

Even without the bikini, this VP pick is severely challenged in the dignity department.

Add in that the former State Trooper brother-in-law in question in the troopergate scandal reportedly used a Taser on one of their 9 kids at their home. His explanation? The kid wanted him to do it. Somehow that sounds like a Foxworthy set up, too.

More on the redneck factor, from this morning's Hotline:

"•Bristol Palin's 18-year-old boyfriend/baby daddy, Levi Johnston, is a "superhunky bad-boy ice hockey player" and a "self-described 'f---in' redneck" (New York Daily News).

If it weren't for the actual policy consequences, it would be wonderful to have all these folks in the White House. We wouldn't need reality tv anymore.
