There are no stupid questions.

Are there too many racist crackers in Georgia for Shyam Reddy to win statewide election? I do not know.

However, I do know who believes the answer is important. They are those voters who think that Shyam Reddy is a good candidate, a candidate who would make a good Secretary of State, but they aren't sure whether they should vote for him. Not because they're racist crackers, of course, but because they would prefer to see a Democrat elected Secretary of State, and a Democrat of another color might have a better chance among the racist crackers.

So, the question isn't, "Are there too many racist crackers," but "Should I vote for another candidate in order to appeal to the racist crackers?"

And I think the answer to that question is no.

Now, a more interesting question: who would vote for either of these jokers?
