But does Chief No-Nag know how the vote came out? No. He is in a state of appalled indignation about this story (Republicans Are Racists) up at WaPo, which I kind of view as a consolation prize for DU. Self-esteem building, you know? What cracked me up about the article was that when I was a kid racism was far more common, and the Democratic party was doing a lot better. This suggests that there may be some faint problem with the analysis:
"If anyone in Washington is skeptical about these findings, they are in denial," he said. "We have 50 years of evidence that racial prejudice predicts voting. Republicans are supported by whites with prejudice against blacks. If people say, 'This takes me aback,' they are ignoring a huge volume of research."I did enjoy watching Chief No-Nag, a dark-skinned immigrant, nearly stammering in indignation. Somehow I don't think this is how to win him back to the Democratic party! Eventually, he got eloquent.
From the "We Are Fucked" thread on the DU:
"I'm registering Independent tomorrow. You're welcome to join me."
I'll give my chums the Larouchies up in Leesburg a ring and tell 'em what's heading up the pike their way.
I'm sure they'll be thrilled.
Canada didn't want them either.
I can't stand it when Democrats pat themselves on the back for being so enlightened, ignoring the reality.
Anyone with half a brain knows that poor public education is the number 1, number 2, number 3, number 4 and number 5 is the number one civil rights issue in the country today.
Chief No-Nag thinks they want to keep people poor and dependent. And then they want us to be thankful for their help. It's kind of like being slapped in the face with a rotten fish, but the Dean/Pelosi/Kerry crowd can't grasp that.
Anon, your friend interests me! Did she or he expand upon the argument? Something about Muslims find representative government offensive to their culture? That's one I've read on Common Dreams and DU a number of times.
