Republican Sen. Kit Bond, Sultan of Section 8 Housing, just dropped another half a mill of Federal pork on Chocolate City St. Louis.
When will you Republicans ever learn? This is the sort of tomfoolery that won’t earn you one more black vote than you already get (which isn’t many), and it winds up costing you a lot of white votes, in terms of whites shifting to Democrats, or staying home.
Even the much ballyhooed pandering to Hispanics didn’t work. Hispanic turnout was anemic, and the percent of it that went to Republicans was also at a record low. I bet the number of regular white voters that stayed home because they thought they had no dog in the fight was greater than the total number of Hispanic votes for Republicans.
