All I can say is that you have to be from The South to understand how someone as politically gifted as Haley Barbour could make such a mistake. It is the same level of hubris that led Clinton to Lewinski.

First and foremost, being raised in a racists society just blinds one to anything less than heinous racism. Barbour was being interviewed by an important magazine. So he knew the stakes. "Bless his heart", he probably was trying to be politically correct. (This might help explain the aversion by so many to "political correctness".)

Second, "bless his heart", he compounded his problem by trying to blow a dog whistle for his base. Unfortunately, (bless his heart)he blew on a regular whistle.

Finally, he is deaf to the whistle he blew. So, (bless his heart) he had no idea why everyone was up in arms over him being so stupid when he thought he was being clever.

Well, bless his heart, he probably still hasn't figured it.

For those of you who don't believe in or completely understand Southern dog whistle polictics, look at my previous paragraphs. Every southerner, especially southern women, knows that every "bless his heart" was really "he is an idiot". as my grandfather would add, "The only thing worse is if they are coming at him 'in Christian love'."

So, he will spend the holidays hoping this will blow over and the libruls won't kill his campaign. but he shouldn't be worried about us Libruls. It is those other Republican candidates that will beat him to death with this.

Bless his heart.
