Who Exactly Is “Us” There, Cleveland Boy

Transplanted Ohioan Pete Kotz thinks the South’s rejection of the liberal Barack Obama may feed its backward reputation on race:

Just because Southerners are voting McCain doesn’t mean they’re necessarily racist. Conservatives, after all, can’t be expected to cotton up to one the Senate’s most liberal members. But if the election proves to be a landslide, and the South still treats Obama like the new McGovern, the rest of the country will take a closer look at the numbers. And when they see a black guy getting crushed by what they consider to be a weak candidate, they’re bound to view us as three-toothed Nazis. And that ain’t good.
