HARD TO SEE YOUR RIVALS STRAIGHT WHEN YOU'RE LOOKING DOWN YOUR NOSE:

Jim Crow at the Polling Place (JOEL BLEIFUSS, 11/03/14, In These Times)

 A war is being waged on democracy in America.

Brazenly, with a smiling face, the Right is working to shore up the accumulated wealth and power of the 1% against any incursion by the voting hordes.

Sort of odd to believe that half the American electorate not only votes against self-interest but isn't even part of the "voting horde".

But the real classic today is this one, Former pig castrator Joni Ernst poised to win Iowa Senate seat for Republicans (Rory Carroll, 11/03/14, The Guardian)

You probably can't even explain to these folks that it's exactly this sort of common background, that they're so dismissive of, that polls show appeals to Iowa voters.
