Past Words of the Day

Bassett Street came within a vote of being renamed Ho Chi Minh Trail in the early 1970's as a protest against the Viet Nam War.

Sarah Palin was the Wasilla mayor from 1996 to 2002. She was elected governor of Alaska in 2006 and has been wildly popular in her first term with about an 85% approval rating. She was recently selected by John McCain as his Vice-Presidential candidate in the 2008 election. She has since energized the conservative base, as Palin is both fiscally and socially conservative. The other side, however, has pointed out Palin's lack of experience--especially in foreign policy--as well as several questionable moves as mayor of Wasilla and governor of Alaska. Included in those alleged scandals are "Troopergate", in which Palin is accused of wrongly fire the Alaska head of safety, as well as a controversial butting of heads with the Wasilla librarian over book-banning policy. Palin claims no wrongdoing in both cases.

Palin is a native of Idaho, but has lived the majority of her life in Alaska.

1. An adjective used to describe something that is Wisconsin-like, or a noun that simply means Wisconsinite. Wisconsinites are often called "Sconnies" outside of the state. The word is now gaining traction within Wisconsin as well, largely the result of the company "Sconnie Nation" that was founded by two UW-Madison students in their Lakeshore dorm room.

2. I beg to differ: my friends and I were using the term "Sconnie" during college in Madison in the 80's. I first heard it from a good friend who hailed from Oshkosh. He now lives in Seattle, and we bought some of the original Sconnie Nation sweatshirts several years ago and had a reunion, specifically to mourn the fact the WE didn't copyright the term. The Sconnie Nation owners can confirm this.

3. Although many naysayers are correct in saying that "Sconnie" is not a term often used by real Wisconsinites, it is certainly a legitimate term, as it is used in other states in reference to Wisconsinites. In Michigan, a Sconnie is someone from Wisconsin.

4. A bogus term made up to sell t-shirts. True Wisconsinites will confirm that no one from Wisconsin uses this term to refer to each other.
