We are also aware that many are speculating on the racial implications of an Obama loss but not much on those of his victory. Now, no one accused America of racism in denying Al Gore and John Kerry the White House, but should McCain pull off the win, this will undoubtedly be the theme of much protest and probably violence. Yet inexplicably, the fact that a demographic group that votes almost entirely as a block based on skin color will most likely be ignored.
And we painfully know that most liberals are even now dancing on the grave of the right wing of the Republican Party. But if Barack Obama manages to win the White House, it will not mean that the conservative movement is dead; anymore than the liberal agenda disappeared after demoralizing defeats at the hands of Ronald Reagan and George W.

Probably the most bittersweet lesson of this election cycle is that the hypocrisy of the liberal media has been exposed as never before. And it shows in their declining value; the New York Times’ stock is almost at junk status. What we don’t know is if disillusionment with the media will translate into a decrease in their influence and an increase in voters’ desire to circumvent them on their way to the truth. Stay tuned to find out.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
