Randoms of the day

– Steve Sailer’s review of Charles Murray is finally up.

– Chinese chicks love me.

– Samuel L. Jackson understands democracy better than most.

In an interview with Ebony magazine, Jackson explained, "I voted for Barack because he was black. ‘Cuz that’s why other folks vote for other people — because they look like them … That’s American politics, pure and simple. [Obama's] message didn’t mean [bleep] to me."

    Has anyone taken a stab at slicing Murray’s data geographically? I mainly mean urban/non-, but coastal/non-, north/south, east/west might be interesting.

    One of the questions I’m curious about: are these supposed virtuous elites actually in the zip codes next to the dissipated proles?

    Mr Jackson’s theory fails to explain how O won the election.

      I’m not so sure.

      Maybe “people vote for people that look like what they think they should look like.”

        For blacks, Obama kind of looks like them (he’s East African, but try explaining why that matters). For liberal whites, Obama is what they aspire to look like. Not to be black necessarily, but he really is the cynosure of new-upper-class tastes. That’s a man who doesn’t eat at Ouback Steakhouse.
