    I don't know, usually off the cuff comments don't go on for a full paragraph.

    Just be glad Clinton pointed his finger at you. If it had been Weiner....[shudders]

    I think I recal reading in a psychology magazine that people who start off with this sort of behavior often escaslate to more heinous acts,so I didn't vote for him.
    I thought it was a special Mormon ray gun. It only works if you're wearing the magic underwear.

    I don't know if that is true, but the comment certainly didn't help and likely put the final nail in the coffin. Obama was beatable had there been a viable candidate running against him.

    No, I think the context was correct.

    I have not seen the demographic breakdown, but I thought all along the evangelicals would not vote for a "cultist" unless the Obama hate was very strong. Does anyone have the breakdown?

    I think the Obama hate was probably strong enough. It was people that looked beyond party that doomed him.

    Nope. I am not.

    But feel free to explain a context in which such a statement would be acceptable?

    You really do not understand the context drop, do you?

    And his words are no worse than calling someone a "typical white person".

    Rounded to the nearest percent, 47% of the voters voted for Romney.
