It Was All So Much Easier When Everyone Was White and Had a Penis

Poll: Clinton trouncing Obama among black women—Okay, I am officially sick of this stuff. It's completely embarrassing that one of the two major political parties having a woman and a black man leading their nominees has reduced the media and pollsters to a deranged fascination with how much in alignment Vagina-Americans and M-Fer Americans are with "their" candidates. They'll be well and truly struggling when there's a frontrunner who falls into more than one minority demographic. If Pam runs for president, their heads will explode.

Given that they're routinely blown away to hear that women don't automatically support Hillary and Black Americans don't automatically support Barack, I get the feeling that the level of sophistication of the media's thinking about polls like this one is approximately akin to this:

Vagina Beats Blackness!
