    Way to miss the point. Try reading what he said and then think about it and then come up with a better post. “Have a take and try not to suck”.Report

      Really? Jim Fishin Rome? That’s your response?

        Nope you still missed it. Additionally, if your trying to pass off my critique of your comment as proof of your point ie something about the end of human nature in regard to Mr. Simon’s analasis of the election…well then you just swung and missed again. Its 0-2 and your best bet is to put one into right field or left field. Sure, its no homerun but at least you’ll get on base and that sure beats striking out.Report

    I wish it were so. But it’s not.

    Yeah, we got a black man in the White House. Good for us. Too bad about the 800 thousand black men in prison. Tell them about how “the racial and social hierarchy of America is upended forever.” I wish it were so, but the reelection of Barack Obama is not the end of racism (or any other prejudice), any more than his initial election was.Report
