I was sitting at Starbucks yesterday...
So, I was sitting at Starbucks yesterday and I was reading a book. At the table near me, two men were talking about politics. They were talking about some female Democrat they considered racist, and one of the guys was very angry. He kept saying how much he hated this woman. I figured he was an Obama supporter talking about Hillary.
But low and behold, the guy revealed that he wasn't an Obama supporter at all. In fact, he said to his friend, "I never thought I would see the day when I thought Sean Hannity was making sense!"
So whose racism was he talking about? I don't know. My guess is Michelle Obama. (That would explain his visceral hatred.) But what was interesting about this is that the guy was a white male democrat, 40's-50's agewise, and he was now listening to Sean Hannity. This sounds to me like the experience of so many middle aged white Democrats who, for some reason or other, are not happy with Obama.
In the meantime, what did I do?
Drank my latte and read my book.
So, it's not quite a bouncy. But it really did happen and I'm really not surprised. I think McCain may have a surge of voters that he's not even planning for.
