Just ugh. For my fellow Floridians the circus is coming to town and I’m not referring to the candidates for the Republican nomination for President, I’m talking about the media.
Of course as I watch the various cable news channels now and Fox News trots out its “conservative” analysts to offer excuses for Romney’s poor performance and reasons why Florida “should” vote for the liberal elitist from New England. After all, we can’t have an establishment candidate lose with all the support of the fair and balanced network now, can we?
To add to the hilarity, the usual “oh and Ron Paul is still running” smirks are still out there but the bottom line result from the South Carolina primary is that one nugget of truth will escape the nitwits from the various cable news channels:
Southerners, especially conservative Southerners, despise smug, elitist New England politicians who flip flop on issues, mislead the people on the voracity and validity of their conservative values, and will not vote for someone just because the RNC, FNC, or John McCain tells us to.
If anything, this is a message to the country club establishment residing in Boston, New York City, and Los Angeles that ‘them thar stupid people in flyover country’ who do have a tendency to grasp their Bibles, clutch their guns, and think the media is run by left wing extremists do matter.
Can y’all hear us now?
