Country-fried prejudice UPDATE

Posted on Tue, May 13, 2008 at 9:04 AM

Frank Rich writes often in The New York Times that it is a bright new day in America and that racial bigotry is no longer a significant factor in elections. No Democrat need worry that working-class whites in the industrial Midwest and the South won't vote for an African-American president. The Washington Post this morning reports the ugly reality.

UPDATE FROM MAX: For all this, it might be worth a mention that today's Washington Post poll showed somewhat more voters would be uncomfortable with a woman president than with a black president. And if you don't think some ugly sexism has reared its head in this campaign, get a load of Marie Coco.
