Americans are mad about iraq, our health care sucks, rich people are getting wwwwwwwwwway waaaay rich while everybody else is sinking or barely swimming, we’re worried about the environment and global warming and everything.

The republican candidates.... NOT ON the right side of any of those issues. It’s a problem. What DO the republicans have going for them? well, they’re WHITE guys.
