    So "the Food Stamp President" is racist even though no one made any reference to food stamps and race except the Democrats (who apparently assume that the only people on food stamps are black) yet on MSNBC an analyst refers to northern Florida as "the cracker counties" and no one blinks an eye.

    You just gotta love liberal hypocrisy.

    Northern Floridians have always been known as crackers. Something to do with cattle whips. None of them think it's a racial slur.

    Tissue?

    Uh huh. Somehow I think if a Republican had made that comment all hell would be breaking loose about now. Regardless, that's the not the "rules" of our ultra-politically correct society that liberals have created. It matters not what the intent of a statement is, only how it is perceived by others. You can't have it both ways.

    Being a Florida Cracker is a badge of honor. It means you've descended from generations of Floridians.

    Now go away with your race-baiting ignorance, idiot.
