Forgive me, but I am so sick of hearing this shit. EVERY Dem bends over backward to lionize white, male blue collar workers. That group gets more rhetorical attention than any other demo in the country. The whole goddamn nation is obsessed with them.

What's more, Dems propose policy after policy to help these people, while Republican policies directly & measurably immiserate them, but we still have to read this story every day because some Dem chose the wrong fucking silverware at the diner or something.

"Whining on behalf of white men" comprises about 90 of US political discussion. Feh.
