Encounter with an Entrepreneusse

While at the laundromat, I chatted with the Filipina who bought the place a few years ago and has been putting in eleven-hour days and seven-day weeks running it.

"What do you think about Palin?", I asked.

"Don't like her. Drama queen. Big mouth. Now, Hillary Clinton, she is smart. Educated. She is a lawyer."

I was not surprised at the direction of the response, but was surprised at its vehemence. This is the kind of person that Palin purports to speak for.

Maybe she is blowing a dog whistle to whites who are below the upper middle class.
