North Carolina newsman Eric White identifies a bigot:

Washington state representative Larry Seaquist made this comment about NASCAR fans with southern roots: “These people are not the kind of people you would want living next door to you. They’d be the ones with the junky cars in the front yard and would try to slip around the law.”

Slip around the law, would they? Perhaps Seaquist was remembering his fellow Democrat Howard Dean’s 2004 NASCAR team sponsorship:

At $2.5 million, it’s a risky price tag for Team Dean Racing, because Mr. Dean is in tight races in must-win primaries and might not even win the Democratic nomination; the NASCAR season runs through November.

But even bolder, say Democratic experts and lawyers, is that the racing team plans to skirt laws that strictly govern how money is raised and spent to promote a presidential campaign.

No word at this point on the presence of any “junky cars” in Dean’s front yard.
