When conservatices talk about pulling yourself up by your boot-straps, do they mean pulling yourself up like its a Tex Avery cartoon and you can just lift yourself by grabbing your own boots and pulling up? I guess it is appropriate that they use a completely unrealistic bit of cartoon logic to illustrate their unrealistic, racist cartoon ideology.

Yeah, it’s cool how conservative voters, especially the poor ones, never seem to notice this basic ass fact.
