because thats not what he said at all.
he said something along the lines of "people with confederate flag stickers on their cars should vote for us too because they dont have healthcare and their kids need better schools too"
its one of the smartest things i've heard a candidate say in my lifetime. it's very rare that the republican strategy of using race to get millions of people to vote AGAINST their own interests is brought up in mainstream media...
besides, i think half the people he's talking about do it out of a southern heritage/identity thing and not necessarily out of an explicitly racist thing...
