In the 1948 presidential election, "Dixiecrat" Strom Thurmond carried three Arkansas counties: Crittenden, Lee, and Phillips.

In the 2008 Democratic primary for US President, Barack Obama carried three Arkansas counties: Crittenden, Lee, and Phillips.

Here’s what Sarah Palin represents: being a fat fucking pig who pins “Country First” buttons on his man titties and chants “U-S-A! U-S-A!” at the top of his lungs while his kids live off credit cards and Saudis buy up all the mortgages in Kansas.

All 3 counties have large numbers of African Americans. We can reasonably assume most people who voted in the Dem primary in these counties were black.

Yeah, but blacks couldn't vote in 1948 in the first place.

The point is that Thurmond only carried the counties where black people outnumbered white people.

Which is telling us good things about Arkansas in 1948, really.
