West Virginia – No one cares

The exit polls showed race, education, Obama’s former pastor and a plan for a summertime suspension of federal gas taxes all gave Clinton a huge advantage in the state’s presidential primary.

  • Electorate was 95 percent white
  • Whites without college degrees make up 2/3 of the population.
  • Over 50% of families earned under $50,000
  • 75% of whites without college degrees were backing Clinton.

I’m glad everyone put down their jugs, buckled on the overalls, and rode the donkey down out of the mountains to take part in the election – it’s part of every American’s responsibilities. 

And so the breaking news is that the poor and uneducated have flocked to the 2 white candidates who are giving away free t-shirts with every new credit application…I mean giving away $50 in tax-free gas for every vote.  And they’re not supporting the black candidate who isn’t promising to give them fifty bucks.  What a shock. 

If you burn 30 gallons/week, the 18 cents per gallon of “holiday” will get you $5.40 in savings per week – what a joke.  Of course to pay for that we’ll have to cut other funding, like federal education funding in West Virginia. 

This isn’t even a story – but yet here is the caption on every news site:  “Hillbillies Vote White, Want Free Stuff“.  I wouldn’t be surprised if West Virginia is where people say “It’s got electrolytes! It’s what plants crave!”

    I’m democrat but will NEVER EVER vote for Obama, because:
    1. Obama has never done any job from starting to the end
    2. He is a walkie-talkie
    3. He has no political ideas at all
    4. He was rised by Chicago mafia politicians
    5. His wife Michelle takes bribes
    6. His portfolio is thinner than a sheet
    7. He ruined the party with all those betrayers like Richardson, Pelosi, Kennedy ans so on

    So if Clinton is not chosen or the results are falsified (as Dean & Co try hard) then I vote for Nader or write-in Clinton

    […] Hillary Clinton speaks out against misogamy affecting votes – but when the vote goes to over to West Virginia and Kentucky, does it seem she’s quiet about how votes are affected by skin color?  If […]
