Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Racism; classism.]

"On Nov. 6, Romney carried the majority of every economic group except those with less than $50,000 a year in household income. That means he carried the majority of middle-class voters. While John McCain lost white voters younger than 30 by 10 points, Romney won those voters by seven points, a 17-point shift. ... [A]ny party that captures the majority of the middle class must be doing something right."—Stuart Stevens, chief strategist for Team Romney, in an op-ed for the WaPo, boasting that, even though Romney lost, he got all the GOOD VOTES, i.e. rich white people.

Such a cool party filled with so many great people!
