Yes, southern whites are disproportionately represented in the lunatic fringe. I have no real idea why they are so eager to demonstrate and fight against their own best interests other than ignorance. It's sad but it's damned frustrating, too.I'm so unlikely to be represented by someone who will actually represent the interests of his own constituents that I am forced to donate to candidates in other states who stand a chance of winning and also doing some good.

Hi Lance,

I enjoy reading your blog. Cheers to you for this post today. I mean really, what's up with carrying rifles/pistols like this is Dodge City? The part in your paragraph about "too busy to read, and too "authentic" to think for themselves" accurately describes these people. Like some have noted, all that is missing are the gun nuts to drive by in jeeps waving thier guns and yelling like they are in Somalia. I have been disappointed with NPR Radio's very tepid coverage of these people, the oranizations behind them,etc.


The really funny thing is, Anne, that in Dodge you had to check your weapons at the saloon.
