If you were to crack open America's Newspaper of Record and find an op-ed by --
David Paul Kuhn, a political analyst, is the author of the political novel “What Makes It Worthy” and “The Neglected Voter: White Men and the Democratic Dilemma.”
-- well who knows? In your ravenous, read-everything desire to make sense of what just happened, you may just be tempted to take seriously his postmortem on the election we just had. It is entitled --
Sorry, Liberals. Bigotry Didn’t Elect Donald Trump.
-- and it's full of scolds for all you naughty Liberals about how, sure, maybe there's a buncha racism in the GOP, but also maybe there's not! And even there is a shit-ton of racism running straight through the Party of Trump, it probably didn't have anything whatsoever to do with electing the Il Douche. Because after all, Bill Clinton was real popular even though blowjobs!
His approval rating reached the highest point of his presidency during the Monica Lewinsky scandal. It wasn’t that Democrats and independents endorsed Mr. Clinton’s behavior. They opposed Republicans more.
Eat my impeccable logic ya damn hippies!
So there you go.
If, instead, Mr. David Paul Kuhn's NYT bio read something like this "A consistently-wrong-about-almost-everything-National-Review-drone and Fox News guy. Most famous for trying and spectacularly failing to pull off some kinda male-pattern-man-bun thing and some kinda Joker-outfit-from-the-irregular-rack thing." --
-- I'm just willing to bet that you would be less likely to entertain his quaint notions about race and politics in America more likely to ask WTF the New York Times is doing opening its pages to such a person.
What an excellent question!
