Gee, I'm Glad I'm From Where I'm From

In this post from, Ben Smith reports his conversation with a young Obama canvasser circulating through working class neighborhoods in Philadelphia. According to Smith, this story is not the exception, but rather the rule for Obama campaigners in middle-class working neighborhoods throughout the hotly contested states in the Rust Belt.
"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."
That's okay. They all have their hatred and bigotry to keep them warm through the winter.
