If you look in the dictionary under stupid political moves for the first possible black president, there is a passage that reads: "Whatever you do, do NOT tell poor whites that their guns, religion and xenophobia is something that they 'cling to'..."
Apparently BH Obama failed to read that part. Instead, the African-Indonesia-Hawaiian great somewhat black hope decided that it would be a good idea, fresh from the killing fields of Pennsylvania, to tell elitist San Friscoans that the hicks in the Midwest (PA?) are huddled under the covers with Bible, bombs and bigotry crying their sad religionist, rifle-crazed, racist selves to sleep for the last thirty years.
Of course, those very Bible-belting, gun-grabbing, immigrant-insulting have taken great offense. And of second course, Obama's rivals have jumped all over his indiscreet truth telling and have proclaimed that these people love God, guns and legal Greek immigrants along with their baseball and apple pie.
