The election would have played out very different if women and blacks had never been granted the right to vote.

    It is comforting to know that if I lived 162 years ago in this country I still could vote! Hooray white men!

    As the scourge of white male political influence diminishes, expect to see America’s economic strength and status in the world as a superpower become more secure every generation!

      @ShowerBench Is ShowerBench a woman?… If she is she has to be the dumbest cunt out there…. and if she is, let me speak the in terms of “Mad Men” when women weren’t viewed as equal and viewed as being at their best when barefoot and pregnant… where is her picture?.. she is probably a fat ugly pig! Why don’t you get back in the kitchen and start rattlin’ those pots and pans and shut your pie hole you slob. 
      If ShowerBench is a guy, didn’t you ever have girlfriends who were Latina or black? What has happened in the past four years that is so bad?… There were no new wars started, in fact one was ended, Osama is dead as well as other high profile terrorists, unemployment is very slowly starting to decrease, equality for people (gay people especially) has been solidified further, the housing market is starting to rise, the US auto industry has been saved and in a little over a year heath care will actually be affordable for people who can’t afford it.  We get it, a white guy isn’t in the White House, but aren’t we all human beings?…

        @ShowerBench I’m not connected with the Democratic party so I didn’t “win”.  I was very happy for Fez though.

    If we’re looking at facts we were way more profitable back then.  Maybe if we ask really nicely we can get 8 years of just white men voting and see how the country turns out.

    This point is moot because we wouldn’t have a black candidate running.

    So what? Obama somehow won the election without getting any or many white men votes? That’s fucking insane. Why am I arguing with FEZ? I’m the fucking idiot.
