In conversation recently with the parentals in S.C., they mentioned how moved and inspired they had been while watching Obama’s speech from S.C. – the speech that was televised nationally on many news channel the night he won S.C.
There is a very serious chance they would actually VOTE for Obama in a General Election. And that’s a sentiment coming from the kinda folk who, and I quote Gary Reese of Southern Political Report, voted for McCain in the primary “only because Mussolini wasn’t on the ticket.”
Honestly? I think there is a massive swell of backlash building underfoot against the divisiveness and scorn and downright hatred perpetuated from right wing talk radio. Witness the amount of concern and conversation on this one post alone. Or stories like this.
Folks are just sick and tired of partisan vitriol. It simply wears people down to a bone-felt weariness that they finally realize they have the power to shake-off.
And turn-off? That remains to be seen.
