This is going to be so amazing to see the effort to dish out paybacks for past transgressions. The double standards will abound. The ignorance of these ‘educated’ writers is typical of those that have gained access to power and status via a helping hand. Arrogant to a fault. Insulting to a fault. Clamoring for, demanding respect, yet doing all the things that will never allow them respect and only promulgate a backlash by not just the dumb crackers of the South, but anyone else that is tired of all the whiney, race baiting of the educated, arrogant servants of the Left. You are still a servant…just you got to pick your master this time around. And, you picked servitude to the State, not to yourself.
“The problem is that she believes that,” Bositis replied. “Remember, for much of the post-Civil War days, the South was isolated from most of the other parts of the country. And, after the civil-rights bills were passed and the turbulent times of the ’60s, the South reasserted itself. But politically now, the South is in big trouble when it comes to the Republican Party.
“And, if they look, the people in the Deep South will find that among the New England states, there’s not a single member of the U.S. House who is a Republican. … People like Marsha Blackburn may be confronting a country that isn’t buying into those old Southern values anymore … values such as fundamentalist religion, militarism, anti-unionism, negative feelings about race and civil rights, low taxes and spending, except money that they can mooch off.
“The rest of the country is becoming increasingly educated, and all trends are working against the South. As long as people like Marsha Blackburn want the Republican Party to do more of the same, they’re going to be in for a long run in the minority.”
Yes, pity the poor South. But you get exactly what you deserve if you don’t get with the right program.”

And the real winner is…Peggy the Moocher
Who is Peggy the Moocher? She’s Peggy Joseph, a voter in Sarasota, Florida who exulted earlier this week at a Barack Obama rally that this was “the most memorable time of my life.” Why? As she told a Florida reporter on a YouTube video now viewed by hundreds of thousands: “Because I never thought this day would ever happen. I won’t have to worry about putting gas in my car. I won’t have to worry about paying my mortgage. You know. If I help [Obama], he’s gonna help me.”
Southern, White Racist Huh? Ignorant and all…huh? Shit, Martha!
