Late Post Today (With a Brief Aside on How the Rude Pundit Was Right About Indiana):
Last week, the Rude Pundit waxed nostalgically about his time in the putrescent herpes sore that is Indiana. Yesterday, the Washington Post backed him up:

"In Muncie, a factory town in the east-central part of Indiana, [Danielle] Ross and her cohorts were soliciting support for Obama at malls, on street corners and in a Wal-Mart parking lot, and they ran into 'a horrible response,' as Ross put it, a level of anti-black sentiment that none of them had anticipated.

"'The first person I encountered was like, "I'll never vote for a black person,"' recalled Ross, who is white and just turned 20."

(The article also details racist incidents in Pennsylvania. And Muncie's a city of about 70,000, not exactly a "town.")

Back later with more on bugfuckery masking as political discourse.
