McCain Losing The Racist Vote.

UPDATE: Apparently McCain manages to still hold on to that important evil mastermind vote – not everything is lost then…

If you thought it couldn’t get any worse for McCain, it sort of did – McCain is apparently losing that important racist vote: it’s not really a story here, since I don’t see any statistics, but for all it’s worth:

Ben Smith: An Obama supporter, who canvassed for the candidate in the working-class, white Philadelphia neighborhood of Fishtown recently, sends over an account that, in various forms, I’ve heard a lot in recent weeks.

“What’s crazy is this,” he writes. “I was blown away by the outright racism, but these folks are f***ing undecided. They would call him a n—-r and mention how they don’t know what to do because of the economy.”

Seriously, what is happening here? If you can’t even count on the racists not to vote for the black candidate, then there is no certainty whatsoever! What’s next? Jews in Florida voting for Pat Buchanan?

In related news, are you an elitist?

At the Movies: Old Fashioned Racism

Taking a break from the usual programming, e.g. Sarah Palin hilarity, I thought I’d share this clip of the increasingly omnipresent (but always sweaty) Slavoj Zizek talking about why The Sound of Music is racist.
