#1 Just like the revival crowd that gathered celebrating the return of the 60s anti-war movement to promote 'Defeat in Iraq'(tm), there's a large segment of the society that is fixated upon those 60s and have never paid attention to changes in society as a whole since then. For them their perspective is anchored to some event back then and they are oblivious to the changes that have evolved around them. Unfortunately, they're still making policy and voting as though it still was the 60s.

Some people think of the 60's and early 70's as the 'Glory Days' of their lives and never really left. Take Bill Ayers (Please!) or John "I've served in Vietnam and have re-enacted home-videos to prove it" Kerry. To them nothing has changed since.

#3 The Prez is black

Oh dear! I just kinda sorta assumed he was an unusually swarthy Puerto Rican with lots of socialist friends.

#4 Gee, you think the good prefesser is finally waking up to the fact that O-blah-blah sold her a bill of goods?

(Yeah, me neither.)

#5 Back in September I was at the reenactment of the Battle of Chickamauga Creek in North Georgia when a German TV crew asked if they could talk to me. They were un-interested in the Battle but wanted to talk politics. After a few minutes I was asked if I really thought a Black man could be elected President. I said Yes. Yhen I asked him if a Black man could ever be elected to lead Germany and he and his crew almost rolled on the ground laughing. I took that for a no.

#6 She's quite late (though no dummy, I found her stuff so banal and often worse that I stopped looking at her stuff a long time ago). Way back in the summer and fall, I'd mock the silly people so impressed with the skin color of the ridiculous Dem front-runner/candidate with "get out much?", making the same point. I've never been horrified and ashamed of the country as I have been, and remain, since the hysteria of '06, culminating in the insanity of the election and today.
