That sounds about right

Virginia Food Stamps Program

That’s a good test, right there:

I want to talk a little bit more about what I call, in our blissfully post-PC era, Red State Stupid.

Red State Stupid is also really Red State Mean.  It’s shoot-off-your-nose-to-spite-your-face mean.

And I don’t think that we can separate the two

My friend J. says that you can identify, with 100% accuracy, Democrats vs. Republicans with one simple test.  Democrats, he says, don’t care if some “undeserving” folks cash in on, for example, a free lunch program, as long as not one child goes out to recess hungry.  While Republicans, according to J., don’t really care how many children starve as long as not one, single “undeserving” child gets a free meal.

  1. This links to an article that is full of the patronizing, vitriolic anti-Sanders palaver that lost Clinton the election.

  2. What article were you reading? If you think alt-right sympathizers need to be coddled you are delusional.

  3. Nobody in the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party has suggested that we coddle alt-right sympathizers. That was Clinton’s campaign–to punch left and kiss right.

  4. Link is hilarious and also mostly true. But we have an electoral “college” (ain’t that ironic) and until we level the stupid advantage built in, we will have to be EC Correct. They mean well, really they do.
