This post will be a little different than usual. I don’t have a specific topic, and those who have been great enough to read this blog may realize that this has been generally less of a blog and more of a series of essays. This is one reason that I don’t post more often because if I did, this would devolve into a mere series of random thoughts.
The mainstream media and Democratic Party are so hopelessly disconnected from Middle America to the point that the only possible explanation is that we must be racist and bigoted, though they can’t back any of that up. Van Jones on CNN even called the election a “whitelash.” Umm, so please tell me how we are using divisive rhetoric! Oh it must have been white racists, or we’re just uneducated rednecks. We didn’t get a PhD in African-American Lesbian Dance Theory from Yale, therefore we’re somehow too stupid to elect a President.
