Southern Strategy

On Nixon Tapes, Disparaging Remarks About Ethnic Groups -- NYTimes.com

Read it. This guy invented the Southern Strategy. If you think those who inherited this political lineage are any different when they're in private, making their plans and cutting their deals, you're dangerously mistaken.

Hell, in my state, they pretty much talk like this out in the open. Some may seem different in the open, but that's only because they're the smarter ones. But oh yes, they talk like this when they're alone. And they speak the language in other, quieter ways when they know it's not safe. In glances and gestures.

And they're rising again.
