    Not all the old white men are reactionary, racist, assholes.

    A big chunk of us are to the left of Obama.

      How hard it is for goopers to understand that?  I encounter this incredulousness in exchanges with wingers elsewhere, and they simply don't believe the demographics.

      I'm 43, male, and not just pasty-white but positively nordic in extraction.  I'm also in the upper 1/5th of income among Americans, and I've not just worked in Corporate America, I've worked in management.

      And I'm very much an unapologetic fan of Obama.  Stupid wingers don't get that I do so out of self-interest, not stupid tribalistic identity.

    •  Oh crap. I've been using that as an excuse. (2+ / 0-)

      What good is being and old white guy if you can act like a reactionary asshole once in a while? After all, my middle name is Grumpy.

      Srsly, this old-white-guy shit is annoying, don't you think?

      There's no excuse for racism. Nor sexism, ageism, bullying, etc.

      I react with truth. I react with respect for the individual. If they hear that as a personal attack, it's their insecurity, not mine.

      When President Obama corrects one of Willard's lies, Willard hears that as a personal attack. It's nonsense. I don't attack Willard. I attack the bullshit that he spews.

      I pity Willard.

      I pal around with big chunks of the left.
