    like to think of this hateful bigoted stupidity as an old folks. That is a reassuring belief, like it would die out as generations shift.
    It doesn't. These were idiots in their 20's and 30's...
    and so it goes  

    •  Yep. That's an excellent point. (3+ / 0-)

      They aren't the "death-bed demographic" we tend to associate with the Limbaughs and Levins and O'Reillys and their ilk.

      Those were... well... here's the essential Wiki info on Strongsville, Ohio:

      As of the census[1] of 2000, there were 43,858 people, 16,209 households, and 12,383 families residing in the city. [...] The racial makeup of the city was 94.18% White [...]

      The median income for a household in the city was $68,660, and the median income for a family was $76,964 (these figures had risen to $79,715 and $90,870 respectively as of a 2007 estimate[5]).

      So at least before the crash, that area (just Southwest of Cleveland) seemed to have fared pretty darned well throughout the Dubya years.  Logically, they're already likely to keep the GOP ball rolling with Mack Daddy McCain and Sista Sarah.

      And that's what makes their intense, misguided and misinformed hatred of then-Senator Obama both mysterious and crystal clear at the same time.

      There's absolutely no reason for them to think those things unless they've been told to think those things.  Clang, clang, clang.

      -- I think what Fox is trying to say is "Joe Biden was acting like Andrew Breitbart."
