Hey John, really enjoy your blog, and saw you at the convention last week in Denver, MSNBC I believe, so if you were trying to hide, your cover was blown. On this topic though, I have been given a book titled, "Whats the Matter With Kansas" and speaks about how the working class and working poor have been led to believe that if the richest AMericans get richer, even on their labor, that somehow they benefit; thus they vote Republican even when their real interests are not anywhere in the Conservative platform. read the introduction online at Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Whats-Matter-Kansas-Conservatives-America/dp/080507774X/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1220552379&sr=8-1

Thanks for you blogging

Thanks for the kind words. I have read that fine book, and have recommended it to others.

There's one thing I don't like about it, though, and this is a big one. Frank assumes voters are pretty stupid in that they can't recognize their own interests. I don't know about that.
