Prager: How is Voting like Eating Ham?

Certain voting blocks are pretty solidly in the Democratic party's grasp. What is particularly interesting is that many of them are voting against their own personal or religious interests and beliefs. In this recent article, Dennis Prager analyzes why this is the case, and how long-standing beliefs and habits influence people in the voting booth. He uses his own experience (both with eating ham and voting) to explain.

He also observes that leftists, when they have no strong argument to stand on, resort to calling their opponents "SIXHIRB". If you ever see somebody using one of these seven epithets to describe their opponents, you should immediately suspect the strength of their argument.
