"Thank heaven for old white men" [View all]

LTTE, Clarion-Ledger:

"I can’t help but notice that Democrats are collectively sounding more and more like an undereducated smartaleck 13-year-old. In fact, Barack Obama often behaves like a bratty child who was raised by wolves. Now Democrats are throwing stones, claiming that the Republican Party is nothing but a party of old white men.

For the record, I have no problem with old white men. Our country was founded by old white men. The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were written by old white men. Old white men won WWI, WWII and the Korean Conflict.

The last time I checked, the man who freed the slaves was not only an old white man, but also a Republican. Lest we forget, Ronald Reagan, arguably one of the greatest presidents in U.S. history, was, in fact, an old white man."

BTW, the Clarion-Ledger is -- big shock here -- in Jackson, Mississippi.
