Elizabeth Holmes reports from West Chester, Ohio on the presidential race.

Like most campaigning politicians, Sarah Palin often praises the places she travels to, reminding her supporters what’s so great about their particular spot in the country.

Palin often lists off a bunch of adjectives to describe the locale, like calling the scenery “beautiful.” She’s also fond of saying that the people in a particular place “just get it.”

At a fund-raiser in North Carolina Thursday evening, she added a new one to the list: “pro-America.”

“We believe that the best of America is not all in Washington, D.C.,” she said to applause.

“We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard working very patriotic, um, very, um, pro-America areas of this great nation. This is where we find the kindness and the goodness and the courage of everyday Americans.”

The comment prompted Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton to send this e-mail to reporters: “Just asking: What part of the country isn’t pro-America?”
