The Snuffy Smith Vote

I could do a "Write A Caption" post. That would be too easy and sexist. Can't Republicans come up with better ways to support Sarah Palin and offshore drilling than unintended puns. This T-Shirt isn't the best way to market Palin. What's next? The Joe Biden thong?

Litbrit is the resident word-wonk. "Drill'em" is not a word. Them is used for "nonstandard speech and for humorous effect." Republicans use nonwords because they believe their base is stupid.

The McCain campaign is making an effort to get the Snuffy Smith vote. The McCain people believe all conservatives are inarticulate. Palin's accent and talking points of small towns is exactly why John McCain picked her. Mitt Romney could not emote about hockey moms and Joe Six Packs? McCain has a condescending view of the American people. That is why the majority of voters don't trust him on the financial crisis.

the republicans are CLUELESS as to what is hot. Certainly not sarah palin.
They hope to pick up what they perceive as sexy glamour from this .... less than ideal woman.

It's laughable. One man's hot is another man's repugnant. I mean Republican.
