    Default White Males Aren't Feeling the Love

    In the days leading up to Pennsylvania's primary, white males -- those knuckle-dragging, chaw-chompin', beer-swillin' bitter troglodytes -- were suddenly the debutante's delight.

    Political commentators' brains grew new crevices as they pondered the imponderable: Would white males go for the woman or the black? Or as Nora Ephron more pointedly posed the question: Whom do white men hate more -- women or blacks?

    The article was promted by this one.

    This is an election about whether the people of Pennsylvania hate blacks more than they hate women. And when I say people, I don't mean people, I mean white men. How ironic is this?

    To put it bluntly, the next president will be elected by them: the outcome of Tuesday's primary will depend on whether they go for Hillary or Obama, and the outcome of the general election will depend on whether enough of them vote for McCain. A lot of them will: white men cannot be relied on, as all of us know who have spent a lifetime dating them. And McCain is a compelling candidate, particularly because of the Torture Thing. As for the Democratic hope that McCain's temper will be a problem, don't bet on it. A lot of white men have terrible tempers, and what's more, they think it's normal.


    Anyone else find it ironic that Nora Ephron can't see past her own bigotry and hatred? :creepy:

    Clinton beat Obama by a 10-point margin in part because of WECM -- white ethnic Catholic men.

    Pollster John Zogby says that WECM, who tend to be conservative, weren't sure they were going to vote at all. And though they didn't particularly like Clinton, they weren't going to vote for Obama.


    Are ethnic Catholics necessarily racist? Or were they responding to something else when they voted against Obama? Perhaps his more liberal voting record? Or, just possibly, recent comments that were perceived as insulting and out of touch?

    I am not feeling the love from any of these three candidates.

    Maybe they should contact Al Sharpton!

    Maybe white males aren't finding a candidate they like because of the candidates beliefs, not because of the candidates race or gender (or age)...

    In my opinion,the new campaign badges should read "Who cares 2008."
