When I was a kid, most people from the South were democrats....but, not the liberal pinkos that we know them as now. I guess they were what is known as Dixiecrats (maybe people refer to them now as "Blue-dogs"). Dixiecrat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Given all the people I know, 90%** of them like NASCAR...and none of them would vote for the Kenyan. So, it is a little surprising that the DNC would choose NASCAR in their event lineup. Maybe someone with some sense pulled the plug for fear that there would only be 12 or 13 people show up....eh?
