NBC's Andrea Mitchell gives her take on the state of Iowa while covering the upcoming caucus. Mitchell makes her feelings about the Midwestern state to the viewers, opining that "the rap" on Iowa is that it is too white.

"The rap on Iowa: It doesn't represent the rest of the country, too white, too evangelical, too rural. Still here, politics are personal," Mitchell said on Sunday's broadcast on NBC's "Nightly News.

For the elite, anything in fly-over America is so very gauche. To be required to notice it, even once in every 4 years, is utterly gauche.

So, too white, too evangelical, and too rural couldn’t possibly pick NBC Andrea Mitchell Democrats.

Without knowing much about Andrea’s life, I could probably be safe in saying she hangs around very few people of color, lives near very few people of color, and lives a life of the very rich in a gated type community where people of color do her laundry, sweep her floors, and clean her toilets.

But she picks on real American folks who work hard and love God as being unfair. LOL

But thanks for playing Andrea, you hypocrite floozy.

Andrea- It’s because Iowa is still part of the United States of America, not some third world hellhole like NYC.

“too white, too evangelical, too rural”—three things the media elite idiots like Andrea Mitchell detest.

You’re going to have an unpleasant surprise come election night in November, Andrea, when you see how many “bitter clingers” show up at the polls to throw your boy out on his rear end.

If December gun sales are any indication, I would say those bitter clingers will be out in full force come November. They think fly over folks are stupid when in fact, they see exactly what obama is trying to do to America.

Liberals, like Andrea Mitchell, love having minorities around providing they stay in their neighborhoods and allow wealthy liberals to drive through and feel sorry for them.

Fly-over country is an anathema to the Libbies on both coasts. If it weren't for elections, those Libbies couldn't even consider 'fly-over country' as having any relevance. And they are trying to sideline 'fly-over country' in elections by doing away with the Electoral College.

Why, because, as Mitchell says, "...too white, too evangelical, too rural."

Notice that she omitted too patriotic. Just an oversight, I'm sure. [/s]

OK, like Hilliary, she made points with all the non-whites,and the diversity crowd.

If she had been at the signing of the “Declaration of Independance” she would have said: “Too white, too evangelical, and too country!”

THANK GOD THEY WERE!
That was over 200 years ago, and nobody before, nor since has build a nation of freedom we have tasted, and celebrated!
