Hey label makers in the McCain campaign and in right wing fantasyland, here's a new one you can lay on Barack Obama -- working class hero.
If you want to get your fix for legends, prowl the right wing blogs and consume only GOP advertising that tells you the Barack is an empty celeb.
Unfortunately research comes crashing into the walls of the country club, this time revealing the Obama is favored by McCain by low-income voters by 2 to 1.
These folks may be bitter, and for good reason because this country is not in truth fulfilling its promise of opportunity for all. Sure you can cite examples of individuals wiggling out of the straitjacket of poverty, but these are far too often the exception and not the rule as the facts show.
This also gives a blow to the view of some (yours truly at times) that these folks vote against their self interest.
Well it looks like they wont. The trick now is to find ways to get them out to the polls and to thwart the GOP in key states from finding ways to disenfranchise them.
