So Long, White Devils! Hello, "New Welfare Constituency"!

Oh yes? You don't want to buy the argument that white people are tribally clinging to a raft built by rich fellow white people, in part as an attempt to float away from the scary brown gay immigrants?

So then what happened last night? "Mr. Obama won despite losing the support of white voters by wide margins. Overall, he lost this group by 19 percentage points, even larger than his 12-point loss in 2008," says the New York Times. Now American politics has an entrenched coalition of religious or religious-seeming largely white people, with a small pocket of well-off funders and bundlers who actually benefit from Republican financial ideas, as oppose to the poor whites who imagine they will benefit from those ideas—and there's mostly the rest of us. "Traditional America" is now over, says Bill O'Reilly.

That's not going down smoothly for everyone.

@Leon Saint-Jean I look forward to the day after they run off to Galt's Gulch and it comes to a screeching halt because nobody knows how to fix a toilet or grow lettuce.

I suspect they assume there will be slaves with low foreheads to take care of these things.

oooOOOOooo where do I sign up to get an angry white guy to pay my bills? As a women, I obviously be shoppin'.

@Michelle LeBlanc@twitter Wait, can white guys sign up for this too? If not there is going to be a different kind of angry white guy, angry at the angry white guys.

If you find out they have a sign-up sheet for this service, please do let us all know! There are probably a lot of women who have been stupidly paying our own goddamn bills, never realizing there were Angry White Guys out there waiting to cut checks.

I am in hopes they will come to their senses now. Hard to believe the rich will be willing to pony up again to promote the Nugent view.

@barnhouse Not sure what he's event talking about. The Nuge sold his soul to rock'n'roll a loooooong time ago.

No joke here, just want to register that the O'Reilly thing is still the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.

Makes me embarrassed to be an angry white guy – thank Zeus I'm gay!

Gotta love BillO whining about "voters want 'stuff'" as if Mittens offering everyone a 20% tax cut that magically didn't add to the deficit wasn't offering voters something.

Also, I'm in favor of more alleged John Galts going Galt. More jobs for the rest of us, and fewer people saying "have you read Ayn Rand?" – it's win – win.
