The "Angry American"

Talk-radio host Neal Boortz read from an op-ed published in the Aspen Times Weekly on February 9, about one special interest group none of the candidates running for president have given any consideration to.

When done reading, Boortz commented that while he largely agreed with what had been written, he'd have done it a little differently. The primary change Boortz said he would have made if he'd written the op-ed would have been to eliminate any reference of race or gender, because substituting the word American for "White Man" is far more accurate.

Let's give it a try.

[T]he Angry White Man American is pissed off. When his job site becomes flooded with illegal workers who don’t pay taxes and his wages drop like a stone, he gets righteously angry. When his job gets shipped overseas, and he has to speak to some incomprehensible idiot in India for tech support, he simmers. When Al Sharpton comes on TV, leading some rally for reparations for slavery or some such nonsense, he bites his tongue and he remembers. When a child gets charged with carrying a concealed weapon for mistakenly bringing a penknife to school, he takes note of who the local idiots are in education and law enforcement.
Please read the whole thing, and score another one for Boortz.
