The Democrat party is not the party of the little man: When Democrats say they are the party of the little man, they mean they are the party of the black man (even if he is rich--18% of blacks make more than I do). The General Social Survey reveals that 53% of poor whites (individuals making less than $17,500/year) voted for Bush in 2000 (2004 data are not available). And Democrats are wrong to paint Republicans as the party of fat cats: 62% of whites in the richest category ($110,000+/year) voted for Bush, but that is practically the same share as for whites of all incomes--59%. Sixty percent of the whites who voted Republican make less than $50,000 annually.

The democrats are a coalition of the disadvantaged minorities and the grad school malingerers. One asks: why don't we have more power, when we're so smart?
The other asks, why don't we have more money, since no one is better than us?
Women in graduate school makes democrats; so republicans should eliminate state subsidies for extended education, and put it all on the student loans.
This way, the women have to ask themselves whether an advanced degree in unemployability, is so brilliant.
