The 47% Debacle--Romney Chokes on a Mouthful of Cheezy Grits
I'm surprised Romney wrote off the 47% of worthless victims as unlikely to vote for him. For generations Southern white trash, when we voted, voted for the rich white men running for office because they were, well, white, and being white, or more or less white, ourselves, was what let us identify with the rich folks. I thought Romney was counting on the vote from the Tea Party white men, counting on them to behave just like poor white men used to behave in the South, and for the same reasons. Wrong again?
