Obama’s win really does usher in a new era

The post-election coverage of Obama’s startling blow out of a win—besides the nonsense attempts to pressure him into being conservative—was mostly about the coalition that he built that grabbed more college-educated white people than Democrats traditionally get. But while the campaign deserves mountains of credit for doing such an amazing…

Dear Diary

Ann Althouse finally does the retrospective we’ve all been waiting for: how her months of support for John McCain eventually became tepid and incoherent support for Barack Obama.

My friends, an ass-whupping

It is now no more that toleration is spoken of, as if it was by the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance,…
