    I've never seen so many sore losers wanting to taint Obama's win.

    Unless there was an exit poll question asking, "Did you vote for Obama because he is black," the conclusions these two eggheads drew are unconvincing.

    Shame on them.

    Yes, I'm certain that the economy and two land wars in Asia and the disgracful outcomes from Katrina had nothing to do with it.

    Everybody voted for Obama because we are suffering from liberal guilt.

    You sometimes are a smart man, but when to comes to issues of race you are blinded by your own goofy prejudices, William.

    Hell Bush fucked up so badly that I could have been elected POTUS, and believe me, I'm not (intellectually speaking) as much as wart on Obama's ass.

    Sure, but McCain still got the majority of the white vote, which is a pretty incredible display of racial loyalty given that McCain sucks about as bad as Bush. Obama not only got the clear majority of the minority votes, he boosted more total to come out. And the way I see it, any black person who didn't vote for Obama must have been insane. But you know blacks weren't making their decision by gathering in a room and saying, "Hey, guys, let's look at the pros and cons of both McCain and Obama, and then decide." Nah. They said, "I'm black, he's black, end of the fucking story!"

    Bottom line is, race drove the thing.

    A rather simplistic way of looking at it.

    But is it correct?

    Sometimes, when people don't like the simple answer, say, "It's more complicated than that." When they don't like the complex answer, they say, "No, it's really simple."
