I personally know several females who vote GOP, too. In general, they are either fundamentalist Christians and/or well-off. Both types are cheap and mean (on the inside). Any Republican who voted for McCain/Palin is a neocon. The true Republicans--the true conservatives (historically speaking)--either voted for Obama or Ron Paul, or didn't vote at all. But McCain/Palin offended their sense of decency and integrity.

Wrong again. Long before McCain or Palin were the candidates polls showed the Dem would beat the GOP challenger no matter who it was. It wasn't "them" it was your party and what it stands for.


Did you see the Senate/House results by chance???? The GOP was slaughtered.

People don't like you. They don't like warmongers, racists, bigots, and greedy scrooges who favor corporations and the extremely wealthy over middle class Americans

I hope the comment about fundamentalist Christian women being "cheap and mean" was directed at people you actually know personally and not a generalization towards all fundamentalist Christian women.

Not really, no. The Democratic National Convention of 1968. But that was political protest. As is usually the case with the "fringe" element of the Democratic Party. The Republican Party of today, however, is pretty much composed of right-wing nutjobs, generally uneducated and susceptible to patriotic/nationalist soundbites, race-baiting and fear-baiting. The Republican "fringe" is now the "base."

There you go with the stereotyping again. Can't have a reasonable discussion with you, I'm afraid.

I would really like to know where you get this tripe from. You are so off base, its not even worth the effort correcting such a misguided/misinformed liberal.

See my last quote to Padcrasher as you are guilty of the same.

UNCLE TOM JUSTICE - TIME
In his written opinions, he begins with premises that no self-respecting black would disagree with, then veers off into a neverland of color-blind philosophizing in which all race-based policies, from Jim Crow laws designed to oppress minorities to affirmative-action measures seeking to assist them, are conflated into one morally and legally pernicious whole. He delights in gratuitously tongue-lashing the majority of blacks who disagree with him on almost every civil rights issue

I think this is a pretty safe generalization.
