Via Newsbusters, Jonathan Martin of Politico told Chuck Todd on MSNBC MSDNC:
I think the other reason why north Florida is going to be fascinating to watch tonight is because it’s going to give us a sense of what’s ahead in March, when this primary does move to the deep south states. As you know, Chuck, a lot of those counties in the panhandle, in north Florida, the “cracker counties” more resemble Georgia and Alabama than they do Florida.
You can bet Mr. Martin’s friends will cover for him and you probably won’t see many (if any) references to it on the nightly news. Rush Limbaugh pointed out this shows exactly how biased the media is.
Okay, cracker counties. Now, I remember a guy named George Allen who the Washington Post ran out of politics because he called a provocateur from the enemy camp at a press conference “Macaca,” which, if you go to the Oxford English dictionary you cannot find Macaca. It ain’t there. Nobody knows what it means, so it was free to be defined by the left, and they defined it as a racial slur, and George Allen was histoire. But “cracker” is in the Oxford English dictionary, and the way it’s defined is this: “A contemptuous name given in southern States of N. America to the poor whites; whence, familiarly, to the native whites of Georgia and Florida.”
