With 0% of precincts reporting, it's already clear that Kentucky's Democrats are racist

That post title started out as a tongue-in-cheek, but hey, it works. The Politico says there are five things to watch in Kentucky today, including the role of race:
And though Kentucky voters may also factor race into their votes, they also might be more reluctant to admit it to exit pollsters, said Laurie Rhodebeck, an associate political science professor at the University of Louisville.

“Voters get a little prickly here if you say race” drove their choice, she said. “They’ll say, ‘It’s more that we’re concerned about his church ties or his lack of military experience or that he seems so young and untested.’ Those may be socially acceptable ways of saying they’re uncomfortable with a black candidate.”
Meaning, if you don't vote for the Obamessiah you're either a racist or just using other excuses to cover up the fact that you're racist. Good to know.
