... which will be followed by another GOP minority outreach program

Why do I question dire predictions about Election Day slaughter for Democrats? Because when allowed near microphones, conservatives never fail to say the stupidest, most insensitive things imaginable. Phyllis Schlafly stumping for "Rocky" Raczowski in the 9th District.

If her speech had any greater concentration of pure asshole in it, it'd take physical shape and crash through the floor. Leave aside the incidental race baiting that, of course, "the blacks" were the biggest demographic to go for Obama in 2008, and instead consider for a second that Phyllis Schlafly called unmarried mothers a bunch of welfare sponges who kicked their husbands out of the house so they could get on the gummint dole. (ed. note ... edited to reflect that she said "the blacks" as if she were making an argument for why apartheid was maybe not such a bad thing, after all)

Update! ...  I probably ought to note that the original audio comes courtesy Progress Michigan.

it was "the blacks."

I stand corrected...
And, it is a pretty important distinction to make. You could refer to "blacks" as people, but "the blacks" is a nefarious other.

don't forget about the new black panthers

I voted for Obama
and I'm unmarried. The rest of her assumptions are way off target. You know some old people keep trying to solve todays problems with yesterdays solutions because they aren't capable of absorbing new information. This woman's brain is stuck in the 60's.

Possibly the 1860s
Typically, I've found that when people say "the blacks," they mean a different word.

As for the rest of it... I don't even know what to say.

Wow. Just wow.
You know who has literally created more unwed mothers than Barack Obama? Sarah Palin.
