Exactly-the two groups are completely different.

True up until the 1960s--though after Kennedy was elected and the combination of white flight and the black civil rights movement, lots of working class and middle class white Catholics starting moving over to the right(just as a lot of them were moving out to the suburbs). Nixon courted the Catholic vote and had people like Pat Buchanan working in his administration(himself a Catholic)--and since then you've had a big transition. At this point you have Catholic Republicans like John Boehnner or Paul Ryan who are fully accepted by the white Protestants in the GOP--it's not an issue any more.

That's interesting, from my experience with British ladies on 'oliday, they're sort of the complete opposite of that, though a lot of them get a bit tanked up when they head out of England.

They're just like: "C'mon luv, d'ya fancy a bit of the rumpy pumpy?"

What annoys me in the U.S. is when white people are referred to as "Anglos". Wouldn't that be like referring to Hispanic people as "Moors"???

You can be white and have no real connection to the Anglo Saxons.
