Don't know if anyone has heard this also on other talk shows, that lean either way....
just about all the anti Obama callers where...surprise, surprise, white men with Southern Drawls...
say I'm a troll, but I'm just wondering if anyone else has noticed this on political talk radio (that is heard in all 48 states, not just 1 town).

Perhaps it's 'slanted' towards them by the call screener?

It is amazing that you can tell the color of someone's skin from their voice.

I listened to Progressive Talk Radio last week and the callers expressing support for Obama were 'surprise, surprise': sophomoric, liberal, angry, entitlement-minded, big Government, anti-free market, America-hating, pro illegal, Druids


....all three of them

so? what is the point of this post? do you hate white men with southern drawls? i don't see why you feel the need to post something hateful toward a group of people.

the op feels the need to belittle white men with a southern drawl because they do not have his same political beliefs.
