It is wonderfulness, that the Daily Kos people, they recognize that the nation is changing, that people of color, and other traditionally downpressed peoples, are ascendant.

Wonderfulness that they, the Daily Kos people, chortle and smug, that Captain Underpants, the Loser, he drew votes basically from white people.

Except—just sayin'—that while Underpants pulled in 59% of the white vote, some 85% of the Daily Kos people are white.

And—more wonderfulness—that the Daily Kos people recognize that Captain Underpants, and all his works, are hell on wheels for women.

Which is why Underpants drew but 45% of women voters.

Except—just sayin'—that some 75% of Daily Kos people are male. With but 25%, being wimmins.

And so. Underpants, he attracts 59% of white people.

While 85% of Daily Kos people are white.

And Underpants, he attracts 45% of women.

While but 25% of the people who can stomach Daily Kos are women.

So what, from this, may we conclude?

Pot: kettle: black.

Sounding now loudly across the land, not least from the smug chortlers of Daily Kos, cries that the GOopers, with their 59% white folks, and 45% wimmins, must broaden, stretch, and reach.

Et tu, Daily Kos: 85% white folk, 25% women?

Previously, when were set forth these sorts of inconvenient truths, there then commenced frenzied foaming ululating that the messenger—that is, the statistical source, Quantcast—should be shot in the head. And, thereby, the message obviated.

Too bad that Markos himself, he hugs Quantcast to his bosoms.

You'all's funny.

There is, now and again, good work, there on the front page.

Elsewhere: basically: tiny people, tinily cocooned, in tiny bubbles.

Underpants, and that crew: they has their bubbles.

And you have yours.

It's so safe and sure in there.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
