Ryan just called Florida "the breadbasket of the South" ... phrase has Civil War origins. Florida a major supplier food to the Confederacy—

Oh, man. Caught out there! Another GOP dog whistle that — surprise! — only media lapdoggies can hear.
Courtesy of CNN’s Peter Hamby comes the latest entry in the Handbook of Racial Code Words: “breadbasket of the South.” The new addition will fit smoothly into a handbook that already includes vile bigoted language like “kitchen cabinet,” “angry,” “chair” and of course, “peanut butter and jelly.”
MSM's next big story will not be that the ME is burning, not that freedom of speech is under attack, but Ryan's "confederate sympathies"?!—

What, did she miss Paul Ryan’s neo-Confederate call for the South to rise again?
Excellent lapdoggery, Mr. Hamby!
