Great, now we are crackers
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ^ | October 21, 2008 | Salena Zito

Posted on 10/21/2008 3:27:37 PM PDT by Salena Zito

First we are bitter-gun-clinging-God-clinging-racist-rednecks, now we are crackers.

At least according to John Baer at the Philadelphia Daily News. Click here for his opinion column reasoning that the "Cracker Effect" is why McCain continues to campaign in PA despite sagging polls numbers.

You really have to wonder how the people of Pennsylvania feel about all of the negative adjectives being thrown their way in this election - especially Democrats that vote for John McCain. It is their "traitorous" vote for McCain that everyone is targeting with less than flattering descriptives for their vote.

Salena, at least he hasn’t blessed us with his views on women. How much abuse do the folks there have to take before they turn on him? My personal opinion is that he is ga-ga and has been for some time.

Despite sagging poll numbers in PA????? Obama is up by 2 points in PA. I think Murtha’s little comment about racists in PA might have something to do with that. Now comes this little gem about crackers. Keep it up, libs!

cracker? Is that some kind of pathetic attempt at a racial insult?

You boys and girls are going to have to get a lot more creative than that to offend white people.

I wonder if Obama knows he is going to lose PA and they just want to insult people in the hope they will vote Obama. Can you imagine if someone said this about any other group or race? People would be outraged. The Libs are vermin.

What problems came to the Poconos from NJ? I have to admit though I go to Jim Thorpe as often as I can. When I retire I will probably move back to Pennsylvania just not Philadelphia.

Yes, the ‘cracker’ vote poses problems for Obama. McCain faces similar, if not worse, problems from the, um, uh, nevermind.

You can only be a goldfish cracker if you change your name to Princess.
