Election racialiciousness roundup

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

A summary of post-election good news and bad news from Jack and Jill Politics, a cool blog that purports to offer “a Black Bourgeoisie perspective on American politics.”

Unfortunately, Bob Corker’s race-baiting tactics appear to have paid off. And so have Ward Connerly’s KKK-praising strategies to end affirmative action in Michigan. For more on that, check out BlackatMichigan.com.

Other good news

  • Senator Man-Dog goes down in defeat. You might say he “screwed the pooch” on this one
  • In middle America, Illinois, Michigan and Ohio hold Dems in governor seats
  • Rhode Island’s Lincoln Chafee (R) is finished. Many people are saying they feel bad to lose the moderate Republican. I say this is a binary election. You’re either with us or against us, and we had to smoke the rethugs out. All of them. Sorry, Lincoln, but you chose the wrong party, son.
  • The so-called “western” or “mountain” Democrats have a solid win of the Colorado governor’s office
