    It's pretty clear the systemic dominance of white men in the pundit class is still in its heyday.

    I mean, you have a black woman and a white woman who were proved totally right in 2008 on questions of campaign movement and strategy in the TPM clip embedded above. Yet it's Mark Halperin -- and his fellow "yes, that is right" nodder George Will -- who people still judge as the objectively sound source on these issues.

    No "very serious person" in DC or on cable news would flinch before citing Halperin in support of their argument, but if you cited Donna Brazile, who was right? You're a partisan nut! Off to the hinterlands with you!

    The inevitable demographic shifts are what they are, but their reflection in the pundit class can't come soon enough.

    it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses
