Pennsylvanians Can Add “Racists” To Being “Bitter”

Democrats view of Western Pennsylvanians

Democrats' view of Western Pennsylvanians

We all remember Barack Obama’s description of Pennsylvanians to a group of wine-sipping pinky-in-the-air San Franciscans:

“You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are going to regenerate and they have not.

“And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

Well, apparently Pennsylvanians agree with that assesment; after all: the guy who so opined is well up in the polls there.  Pennsylvanians are poor, helpless, bitter, gun-toting religious freaks who are too stupid to tolerate anyone who isn’t similarly a poor, helpless, bitter, gun-toting religious freak like themselves.

Well, since Pennsylvanians don’t seem to mind being called all that, Rep. Jack Murtha – the “hero of Haditha” – decided to label them as “racists” too.

I mean, why not?

Murtha said:

“There’s no question Western Pennsylvania is a racist area,” Murtha said. “The older population is more hesitant.”

Maybe he was just dotting the i’s, making sure Pennsylvanians – who clearly can’t be all that bright – understand that “antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment” is really just a wine-sipping pinky-in-the-air way of saying “racist.”

Congressman Jack Murtha is one of those human beings who is literally not worth his weight in pig poop, in my humble opinion.

But he stands in the fine tradition of Democratic politicians.

I don’t know, Pennsylvanians: at some point, I suppose I’d start to get really angry at the Democrats who keep raining piss down on you from lofty Mount Olympus.  I suppose you can prove them right by voting for them.

    I am sure every American who cares to watch Election News will be glued to their television sets for the Philly vote. What time will that be out? Where do you find out? As for the rain in your last paragraph Obama will say “it made him cringe” and I see him shriveling in my minds eye to a wet two inch little mouse scampering for cover when he sees the picture at the top of your article. What do people see to rave about in this guy?

    Most of the time election results are called when the polls close. I’m pretty sure PA closes at 8 pm Eastern. When the race is too close to call in any given district, the whole thing gets held up.

    At this point, I wouldn’t mind sending down a little yellow rain on Obama from the top of some building myself.
