Dumb Goopers expected to get Dred Scott crack, apparently

Bush's reference in the St Louis debate elicited a WTF from your humble blogger.

The better informed, it seems [1], picked this up straight away as a coded reference to Roe v Wade.

A compare and contrast with the 62% of Republicans who think that Saddam was behind 9/11 (October 8): these morons, one suspects, are the same folks who are supposed to have decoded Dred.

(One can reconcile the two by suggesting that the Bush campaign - having given us the Florida Flop - were merely confirming their class in requiring this piece of fancy-pants, French-style ratiocination of the 9/11 suckers.)

Interesting to see polling on how successfully the Dred = Roe message carried to the base...
