John Murtha: Pennsylvanians are Racist and Redneck?

Gateway Pundit: John Murtha: Pennsylvanians Are "REDNECKS"

Is he seriously trying to get reelected shooting himself in the foot every week?

First it was

The 17-term Democratic congressman tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in a story posted Wednesday on its Web site that, as he put it: "There is no question that western Pennsylvania is a racist area."

So to spin that he back peddles and says:

"This whole area, years ago, was really redneck," Murtha told Channel 4 Action News.

Murtha believes there is one segment of the population which is holding on to its racist beliefs and he said it's difficult for them to change. Murtha said it may be even more difficult for them to vote for Barack Obama.

"Particularly older people. They want change but they don't want to see things go too far," Murtha said.

So its not the whole are that is racist just those old senile racists.

You know I don't think most people understand what a Redneck really is. I will let Charlie Daniels explain as he does a much better job than I can.
