"He’s neither-nor. He’s other. It’s in the Bible. Come as one. Don’t create other breeds.” RICKY THOMPSON, in Mobile, Ala., speaking about Barack Obama.
And from the same article (yes, in the NY Times: “He’s going to tear up the rose bushes and plant a watermelon patch,” said James Halsey, chuckling, while standing in the Wal-Mart parking lot with fellow workers in the environmental cleanup business. “I just don’t think we’ll ever have a black president.”
Am I an elitist because I find this offensive and stupid? I guess so.
Damn, I wish I'd never gone off to the city and gotten all uppity. I wish I was still a good old boy from the hills of Kentucky.
