"29 percent of the amusement I get from the site is garnered from watching my liberal friends enjoying it and chuckling inside about how they'd enjoy it less if it were titled 'Stuff guilty yet self-satisfied white liberals like,' though the latter title would be more apt."

I'm sorry, WHO is self-satisfied??

And yes, this is basically what Jeff Foxworthy does. It's also basically what a lot of people do, about non-whites, all the time. That is part of the joke. No, Reagan couldn't be on the list, but he could be on an equivalent version of SWPL that includes Chicken Soup for the Soul books, huge trucks, and mayonnaise. That would be a similar joke, but meaner and less ironic. And, as you know, white people like irony.
