    It's still a bit weird to see the wrong one of her 'people I hate' nerves misfire like that in public.

    I could give her more credit in the sinister genius department, and say she's afraid the black people, Mexicans, Jews, Catholics, fans of musical comedy, states with their own baseball teams, etc. will out-reproduce her own tribe. Maybe she really thinks it's a race to fill the world before others do, and she can't stand to see her neighbors failing to pull their weight. Maybe she even thinks of North Carolina so much as a white society, that she thinks more North Carolinians means more white people. Maybe she doesn't leave the private schools, the country clubs, spas often enough to notice any other kind of citizen, or wonder where the maids, porters and waiters come from. Maybe she knows there are still some black people in the South, and knows they typically command less wealth than whites, but still couldn't put together the scenario of a rich, white girl getting an abortion out of state, or staying somewhere civilized after college so she can marry her girlfriend, or saving a few months rent to ditch an abusive spouse, while the poor black girls are stuck at home, because she just figures everyone follows the laws they're given. Maybe she really thinks that white girls will keep on staying home to reproduce, as long as she takes away all their other safe and legal options.

    But it's 2012. Even in the South, does anyone think like that in public? I've got to hope it's just a casual misfire on one of her many 'people I hate' nerves.

      TPM has story,

      According to the alternative Yes! Weekly, which picked up the remarks from freelance journalist and activist Chad Nance, Jodie Brunstetter told a poll worker in Winston-Salem, N.C. Monday that the reason her husband “wrote Amendment 1 was because the Caucasian race is diminishing and we need to uh, reproduce.”
      Seems she'd already done what passes in the GOP for thinking it through.
