    the stupid shit you have to say to white people to scare them into voting Republican makes it impossible for anyone who isn't already a pants wetting wingnut to vote for you
    I'm not sure that's true.  Just based on returns, and the fact that the House is chock full of Republican asscrackers, I'd question the impossibility of otherwise rational people voting R.  Either that, or we've already reached the Idiocracy tipping point.  I suppose it's possible that we have, though, and I'm simply in denial.

    I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.

      voting R is just a habit they got into during the '80s, when, of course, all the Democrats were ineffectual, effete, tree-hugging surrender monkeys, and Ronald Reagan was the second coming.  (This is not unlike my in-laws, who hate Evangelicals, dislike the surveillance state, are not racists, embrace their gay son, and don't think there has been a decent president since Eisenhower, but they always pull the lever for the GOP because they're all NRA members, and Wayne La Pierre told them to.)  How to break that habit among such voters is beyond me.
