The Party of Angry White Men

Sam Tanenhaus has written an excellent article for the New Republic on why the Republican Party has and is the party of white people. Here it is. These are not just the musings of a liberal. You have to look to history of how the Republican sought the Southern strategy to win national elections by exploiting racism in the sixties. And don't take my word for it. Conservative senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said, "We're not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term." This is the major reason why I stopped supporting Republican Party. They've become an explicit in their racism. And don't get me wrong. Not every Republican is racist. But the party has swung hard right. Gone are the Gerry Fords, and the Nelson Rockefellers.

Anyway, Chris Matthews did a piece on the Republicans for Monday's Hardball. And last night, Stephen Colbert covered the Republican woes on The Colbert Report. I like my politics with some humor. Check out the videos below.
