The Heartland's Reservoir of Racism

by Pa Rock

Jimmy Carter told the New York Times this past week that Donald Trump has "tapped into a waiting reservoir of racism."  If the former President is correct, and I believe that he is, the small, insecure money-grubber (tip of the hat to Elizabeth Warren) should have no trouble at all harvesting the votes of the ridge-runners, chicken-pluckers, meth cooks, and assorted puppy mill operators of southern Missouri and northern Arkansas.

I just returned from a trip into the closest county in Arkansas and can report with confidence and no small degree of alarm that the land along the border is blossoming with Confederate flags which are being displayed by people who look like they were bred to be extras in Deliverance.  If those folks are registered, unlike their guns - or dogs, and smart enough to find their way to the polls, The Donald should be well on his way to making America great again!

Perhaps Melania will wear a Confederate flag to the inauguration - albeit a very small one!
