Why Does John Mccain Hate Bitter, Depressed Middle Americans?


An aside from Mike Grunwald's very enjoyable piece in Time on the future of Florida:

I felt better after talking to the bubbly [Florida Governor Charlie] Crist, who's like human
Prozac. "How can you not be optimistic about Florida?" he asked. "Is
there a more beautiful place on the planet?" He then recounted a story
that probably won't help him in the GOP Veepstakes: "John McCain told
me, 'It's tough in those Rust Belt states. You really feel a bit of
depression in people's outlook. But when you get to Florida, people
feel great.' [Italics Mine]
