Defensive

Amanda Marcotte has a typically enjoyable post about culture war and how redneck-Americans distrust Willard Romney for more reasons than his fealty to the Scarlet Whore of Salt Lake City. In it she says, "You just get the impression that Gingrich or Santorum enjoys needling someone who orders the vegetarian entrée." I guess there are people like that, and I wonder if it's like sex: Latent vegans desperately "joking" about what they most fear in themselves, while those of us who are secure in our carnivory don't have to.

Thanx to Pandagon.
