Toontime: Poor, White and No Brains

BC Idonwanna sez: The Russians grabbed Hillary too!

When someone explains to US Person why poor white people repeatedly vote against their own economic interests, then he will not have to post "rude" cartoons like this one anymore. Racism is too facile an answer, and blaming the Russians for a broken political system is simply silly, if not distracting. No one has explained how a few Russian hackers, probably acting on their own accord, managed to convince over 300 members of the Electoral College, who are supposed to know better, to vote for Trump. Were the leaked documents from the database of the Democratic Party that volatile (something on the order of LBJ ordered a hit on JFK) that an entire nation was swayed to vote against its presidential candidate? NOT.  The truth is the Democratic Party establishment fielded the wrong candidate--Hillary had huge negatives going into the election and the resignation of her sycophant DNC chair, Wasserman-Schultz, a bump in the road--and completely missed an inflection point of history.  Because like the Repugnants, they are a front for the plutocracy. It was the sage of Baltimore, H.L. Mencken who said, "democracy is the pathetic belief in the collective wisdom of individual ignorance." Real Americans, you betcha'!
