Welfare? Nah, Bush's friends (and Bush himself) are the biggest recipients of welfare. Majority Leader Lott tells us why: "I want to say this about my state: When Strom Thurmond ran for president we voted for him. We're proud of it. And if the rest of the country had of followed our lead we wouldn't of had all these problems over all these years, either" The top senate republican pining for the days of Jim Crow and the Klan. THAT is why they vote democratic.
