Where have all the [white] men gone?

18 Sep

OK. Here’s the thing. Like most people who think, I found Romney’s 47% remarks to be…ill-advised, at the very least. Still, they weren’t terribly surprising. (I mean, we certainly never expected him to come out and say something tantamount to political suicide among certain demographics. That’s just bad politics. But I’m fairly certain we all knew the sentiment has been lurking in the murky depths of the political right since, well, since 2008. And, in the man’s own words, the campaign has written them off anyway.)

HOWEVER.

I feel it is only fair to point out that the two demographics featured in the Obama camp’s quick response video are equally predictable and there is nary a white male in sight. (As Polly commented with absolutely no accuracy and plenty of snark, they’re all in the other 53%.)
