Arkansas State Sen. Jason Rapert (R):
I hear you loud and clear, Barack Obama. You don't represent the country that I grew up with. And your values is not going to save us. We're going to take this country back to the Lord. We're going to try to take this country back for conservatism. And we're not going to allow minorities to run roughshod over what you people believe in!
For a crowd that claims to be the most American of Americans, they sure have lost sight of what America is. The days of Birth of a Nation are long gone. The days when the Southern Strategy could ensure GOP electoral dominance are behind us. The few pockets of resistance, like this Jason Rapert, are far outside the American mainstream, in the fringes of society, also called the Republican Party.
