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