Angry white men

Posted By on Fri, Jul 23, 2010 at 11:29 AM

They're tired of having higher pay and more managerial jobs. They're tired of black people lording it over them. They're mad as hell. They're not going to take it anymore.

Oh, surprise. They're Republicans. And the political force of the day, this pollster says.

This pollster says, in short, that angry white men are the key to Republican prospects in the fall.

Imagine if they prevail.

It will be junior high all over again. The pig-stupid, racial epithet-spitting, tobacco-chewing civics teacher/assistant football coaches will be your congressmen (or at least telling your congressman what to do). And if you say you don't like it, they'll whip your ass with a big board.

Heaven help us.
