America's demographic shift was obvious to everyone in the 2010 Census - but Republicans stubbornly rejected math, facts, and polls to their electoral peril. While Republicans tailored their platform by and for the pale stale and male, among us, Obama and Democrats are embracing America's diverse mosaic.
You know, you go home and you try on a new mascara, and I guess a male CEO can't do that.

I don't know if comedy is a male sport. I always wondered that.
