We’re Voting for the N***er!

Oct 18, 2008 by

Wow. I am really stunned by this and do not have time to do any in depth analysis until I return to New Orleans in the begining of next week. I’m glad they’re voting for Obama and I am glad that this demographic is deserting the McCain Palin ticket, but still…..

Via FiveThirtyEight.com:

So a canvasser goes to a woman’s door in Washington, Pennsylvania. Knocks. Woman answers. Knocker asks who she’s planning to vote for. She isn’t sure, has to ask her husband who she’s voting for. Husband is off in another room watching some game. Canvasser hears him yell back, “We’re votin’ for the n***er!”

Woman turns back to canvasser, and says brightly and matter of factly: “We’re voting for the n***er.”

In this economy, racism is officially a luxury. How is John McCain going to win if he can’t win those voters? John Murtha’s “racist” western Pennsylvania district, where this story takes place, is some of the roughest turf in the nation. But Barack Obama is on the ground and making inroads due to unusually strong organizing leadership.

Despite the fact that this seems like a bad joke it is actually a true story. Go read the original.
