Well I like Palin and McCain and that other vice president guy, because, you know, they are white. I wouldn't vote for that other one though.
Needless to say, my boss reported this to a manager (ironically enough, every other employee in the store was black, which made it more ridiculous, if that's even possible) and then went back to confront the woman. She was very upset and told her that she teaches children, many of whom are hispanic or black and it really upsets her to hear someone speak like that etc etc.
The whole thing blew my mind though. I mean everyone talks politics in DC, but it's not generally accepted for a store employee to start that sort of conversation with a customer and spewing racist junk like that CERTAINLY is not acceptable. Ugh.
