dburrows/ blog/ entry/ The trifecta of loathing

I talked to my mother last week about the upcoming Pennsylvania primary (scheduled for tomorrow, April 22nd). She lives in the semi-rural Pennsylvania town where I grew up, and so I asked her what her impression was of how the locals felt about the campaign. Well, she said, they think the war is a disaster and they don't want to vote for McCain because they think he'll continue it forever. And of course they don't want to vote for a black man. And they all hate Hillary and think she's evil. So they're having some trouble trying to decide who to vote for; they can't figure out which candidate they despise the least.
