George Bush and the Scots-Irish

A fascinating look at the Scots-Irish as a distinct ethnic group in this country and their effect on the re-election of President Bush can be found here in the on-line edition of the Wall Street Journal. I'm neither politcally nor sociologically astute enough to know if his analyses are accurate. But they certainly sound plausible.

And I have no idea how they got that drawing of me; why, I'm not even Scots-Irish, using the precise definition of the term.
