Teaparty 79% White, America 75% White: A country full of Racists?

Teaparty in Columbia, SC

Todays Daily Gut is worth a read:

So a new Gallup poll profiled Tea Party supporters, and found that they were all racists.

I mean, by the MSNBC definition – they would be racist. After all, 79 percent of those polled were white.

That’s a lot of white people, and Chris Matthews must reckon, a lot of hoods.

But is it a lot when you compare it to the general population? The gen. pop. is 75 percent white, which is only 4 percent less than the tea people. The poll measured other variables – from education to employment, and there was little difference between the TP’s and the rest of America. Even with the obvious lack of liberals – the TP’s represent the “public at large.” Essentially these people manage the hardware store and watch your house when you’re on vacation. They probably hate rap music AND Gossip Girl.

Now, you think the fact that tea-partiers reflect America will stop Matthews, Janeane Garafalo or Keith Olbermann from calling teapartiers violent racists? Of course not – because the left actually feels the same exact way about America that they do about tea-partiers.
