Comment of the Day

From the New York Times online, by Ed Connor of Camp Springs, MD, responding to an opinion piece written by Ross Douthat:

“Or, as was noted long before the advent of Trump, the greatest predictor of a county voting democratic was the presence of a college in that county. For republican counties, it was the presence of a Cracker Barrel restaurant.”

  1. Back in 2015, while the primaries were still going on, I heard an old woman say she was voting for Trump because she got thrown out of a Cracker Barrell for making racist remarks.
    It took some time for it to spread but I think it’s safe to say when you’ve lost Cracker Barrell you’ve lost the country.
