Tired and amused at all the weepy sheep  
In a way, we had a choice between a black President and a female Vice President, and chose the black man. In a way, history has repeated itself. Once upon a time, we had a choice of extending the vote to all citizens or just to emancipated black men, and we chose the latter. In that case, it is arguably because the the pluralistic view would not have passed. In this case, it is arguably because the black man will be able or willing to do more for the cause of gender equality than the woman would have. And, like the first choice, this one will be argued for decades to come. Let's hope that next time the choice is given, that one will be a competent, inclusive, and capable black woman. I'd vote for her, too.
Current Mood: deviousdevious
Current Music: mindless, slavish punditry

I thought we had a choice between a mixed president and an extreme, right-wing conservative demon posing as a woman, but... maybe I wasn't watching it with the right eyes.

Actually, that's just about right, and most people my age and younger apparently saw that, too. Don't feel too bad about not getting to vote, we got your back.
