  1. This is the dark side of American populism that the current Republican Party is going out of its way to court, but doing absolutely nothing to help.

    1. Donna -- It's also the segment of the population we need to be mindful of and try to educate. Sadly, it's never easy.

  2. OH MY LORD!

    Poorest. #50 in education. #1 in obesity.

  3. And by the way....
    Many of the blogs I read require confirmation that I am not a spamming computer, but yours is the WORST. The letters are so squiggly, I can barely read them. It takes at least 2 tries almost every time!

    1. Left Leaning Lady -- At least one other person has complained about the verification, so I got rid of it. Comments will still be subject to moderation, but at least now you won't have to copy squiggles.

  4. A prime example of people that vote against their own best interest. So sad.

  7. Didn't this videographer film in an urban neighborhood too whose residents, while voting more (although not much more given how reactionary Obama really is) for their interests, don;t show a lot of intellectual firepower, either.

    We should beware of classism, folks.

    1. Brian -- I posted the video not to promote classism, but to offer some social commentary on the right-wing.
