Pork is popular...
Just a quick picture, from a Pew Research poll conducted from July 29 to August 1, of where the Republican party, the Tea Party and Sarah Palin have failed even more than Barack Obama in their messaging:
Americans love pork. Even the GOP voters.
The sound you just heard in the back of your mind was an entire line of right wing
While Jed Lewison explains some of the election implications of this... I'll just note that there is no doubt that Pork has more political pull across the spectrum than Sarah Palin does. But none of this should come as a surprise given that we already knew that Socialism is as popular as the Tea Party.
