Vote with Your Wheels

John Tierney has an article in the New York Times detailing the political affiliations of various car buyers, most of which is predictable. ". . . buyers of American cars tend to be Republican -- except, for some reason, those who buy Pontiacs, who tend to be Democrats. Foreign-brand compact cars are usually bought by Democrats -- but not Mini Coopers, which are bought by almost equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans."

While skimming over a later paragraph I came across came across this quote: "In truth, a lot of fans would be sore about ending the all-American monopoly. Nascar has become a covert ethnic-pride celebration for red-state whites of Northern European descent." This sounds like Steve Sailer, I thought, and looked up at the previous paragraph and saw that it is.
