The bitter truth

Apparently, Pennsylvania's blue collar workers aren't as delicate as the political media hoped they would be.
[T]hey find it hard to get worked up about the comments -- as do other Pennsylvanians, judging by polls that so far show little damage from an episode Clinton has worked hard to exploit. Years of watching the decline of the town they have lived in since their family arrived from France in the 1920s has, they suggested, provided perspective that keeps them from getting caught up in 24-hour cable and Internet outrage.
I don't suppose we could get back to discussing issues people actually care about now.
