The sooner Republicans stop acting all depressed (about their 2016 field) and accept this (have a "Come to
Jesus Joseph Smith" moment, if you will), the better their chances of preventing Obama's third term, and ensuring the survival of white privilege, will be.

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett sought to reform the state's liquor laws... for the ladies.
Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett (R) thinks his state should reform its liquor laws. That way, he argued, women would have an easier job making dinner. [...]
"I think a lot of people want to be able to walk into a grocery store," Corbett said. "Particularly, a lot of the women, want to be able to go in and buy a bottle of wine for dinner, go down buy a six pack or two six packs, buy dinner, and go home. Rather than what I just described, is at least three stops, in Pennsylvania."
Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal mixed it up with some immigration activists.
When four immigration activists asked Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) to address a Board of Regents policy barring undocumented immigrants from enrollment to some Georgia colleges Tuesday night, they probably didn't expect the governor to "presume" that they were undocumented.
"It can only really effectively be dealt with by the federal government at the congressional level in dealing with the DREAM Act children, which I presume maybe you are," Deal said at a University of Georgia College Republicans meeting, according to the Athens Banner-Herald.
The activist reportedly retorted, "Because I look Hispanic?" The crowd jeered while Deal apologized. He added that the policy would continue because it would be a huge concern for Georgia residents.
And, last but not least...
In an interview with Newsmax's Steve Malzberg yesterday, conservative pundit Ben Stein insisted that Michael Brown, the black teenager who was shot to death by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, "wasn't unarmed" because he was "armed with his incredibly strong, scary self."
"The idea of calling this poor man 'unarmed' when he was six-foot-four, 300 pounds, full of muscles, apparently — from what I read in the New York Times — on marijuana, to call him unarmed is like calling Sonny Liston unarmed or Cassius Clay unarmed," Stein said.
