Your Daily Santorum

Quote of the Day:
Democrats long ago jettisoned America's melting-pot ideal - E Pluribus Unum ("Out of Many, One") - because it imperils their campaign for permanent rule. Splitting the country into separate identity groups and playing them against each other works a lot better. And anyone who disagrees is a racist.
-Andrew Breitbart, blathering on in the wing-nut rag, Washington Times.

Let's see here. In November, Barack Obama won blacks (95% to 4%), Latinos (67% to 31%), Asians (62% to 35%), and other non-white demographic groups (66% to 31%).

Sounds like a rather broad based coalition to me. "Out of many" (blacks, Hispanics, Asians, and many other different races), "One" (the election of Barack Obama).

On the other hand, the Republican Party won only two major demographic groups: White men, and people over the age of 65, relegating their votes in the Electoral College to the Deep South and the sparsely populated states of the High Plains.

The conservatives and the Republican Party have really lost all touch with reality, haven't they?
