It’s not the suggestion that people might shop at WalMart, it’s the comment suggesting that everybody who is a Republican would shop at Walmart.

You have to learn to stop distorting the facts, Charley.
Where did the poster or Gingrich say that?
Huh? You are clueless about the South. Have you ever been to peanut country in Alabama and Georgia? There’s nothing to do. It’s a joke enjoyed by Alabamians, Missippians, etc. Newt shares the joke. You don’t. You are out of touch.
I'll give you a pass, Charles, since being from Connecticut, you don't know what "nobody must be left at the WalMart" means in a lot of places in the South (it means something to the effect that something big must be happening).
The comment shows that Newt knows his people.
He didn’t intimate in any way that all Republicans shop at Walmart. He was speaking to a specific crowd. Even so, why would that be an insult? As those who live in that area have said, it’s pretty much true. If he were speaking in my little town and said the same thing we would have laughed too because it is packed on Saturday It’s pretty much all there is unless we want to drive 40 or 50 miles.
