I know. And in fact, I don't use the term in a pejorative way. I wonder if you've seen Jim Goad's book, "The Redneck Manifesto?" It occupies pride of place on my shelves. As an aside, what red-blooded, gun-totin', whisky-drinking redneck is going to vote for an empty suit like John Kerry, or a cold, calculating, opportunistic harridan like Hillary Clinton?"Gearjammer" said:edit: Funny comment about the southern rednecks. But rednecks in general, throughout the U.S., seem to me to be more aligned with the Democrats than Republicans except on gun-control and gay rights. I know, I work with a lot of them. You may have more in common with rednecks than you'd like to think.
