In 2003, I decided to run for governor of Louisiana, a state where David Duke got 44 percent of the statewide vote in 1990. The pundits said I was insane to even try. Friends worried about my mental stability and begged me not to run. I narrowly lost that first race, but I’ve won every race since then. I wish I had a nickel for every time East Coast political journalists have asked me about discrimination, and I wish I had a dime for every Louisiana voter who has broken those journalists’ ugly stereotypes.So David Duke got 44 percent of the vote because those Louisiana voters didn't care that he was a self-avowed racist? How does that work?
Here’s what I’ve found in Louisiana: The voters want to know what you believe, what you stand for, and what you plan to do, not what shade your skin is.
He goes on to add:
By the way, I noticed recently that the president of the United States, a man with whom I disagree with on almost everything, seems to have darker skin than most Americans. He hasn’t had a problem getting elected.Good point. So according to Bobby
- There is no racism anymore, because Obama got elected and he has really dark skin,
- He disagrees with almost everything that Obama stands for,
- Obama was elected without a problem
Which leads one to logically conclude that Obama was elected because people prefer his policies over the kind that Bobby proposes.
From there on it gets worse: he talks of sin, melting pots, and salad bowls—the kind of stuff that reminds you of Alaska Palin. Read at your own peril.
