A Blow to Republican Concerns

For John, BLUFIt is only going to get worse.  We need some humor in the race.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

Mr Charles M. Blow, writing for The New York Times, gives us "Woe of White Men, Again?".

This column is about those tired old "white men" bemoaning their loss of position, and then a swipe at the top ten percent of the top ten percent.  But, it is really about Ms Hillary Clinton being President.  The lede is:

Hillary Clinton’s entry into the race for the presidency has goosed the egos of some conservative ganders.
Surprisingly, while Mr Blow mentions Ms Carly Fiorina and Governor Bobby Jindal, as well as Dr Ben Carson, he doesn't mention Senator Ted Cruz as part of the Republican field.  Mr Blow does admit that the Republicans have a diverse field.  I am thankful for that.  Although it is said a little begrudgingly.

Hat tip to the Instapundit.

  Doesn't The Old Grey Lady's Style Book say "Caucasian" is preferable to "White"?  I would hope so.  Or maybe sensitivity is just a one axis thing.

So wait, if I'm a white male who doesn't like Hillary Clinton, that can only be BECAUSE I'm a white male?

What if I like Marco Rubio or Carly Fiorina? I guess if the narrative is pre-determined, there's some pat pseudo-intellectual psychobabble out there somewhere to explain it.

What happens if the GOP ticket winds up including a Pres AND a VP nominee who are not white males?

I guess there will be some narrative by New York Times op-ed writers that somehow explains that it's an illusion.
