Angry white guy bemoans lack of angry white guys in Republican Party
byKaili Joy Gray


This week, Republicans are trying super hard at their convention to show that their party isn't made up mostly of angry white guys. Which is not going very well:

But they have delivered those speeches to a convention hall filled overwhelmingly with white faces, an awkward contrast that has been made more uncomfortable this week by a series of racial headaches that have intruded on the party’s efforts to project a new level of inclusiveness.

Astute political observer and one-third of the most infamous bipartisan traveling ménage à trois, Sen. Lindsey Graham, knows exactly what the Republican Party's problem really is:


“The demographics race we’re losing badly,” said Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (S.C.). “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”


Gosh, with that kind of racial sensitivity, it's hard to imagine how this recent poll is even possible:

While it was no surprise to see that President Obama snared 94 percent of African Americans surveyed, the presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney got nuthin’, zilch, niente, a big fat 0 percent.


At least Republicans can't make it worse.
