In Election Year 2008, I recall thinking that here we are in the middle of jihad, and yet we’re having this rather quaint national fight about race. I felt in a time warp. Eight years later, jihad has ratcheted up from al Qaeda to ISIS, and from one major attack a year to one or two a month. And unbelievably, our race war throwback has escalated to the physical and is playing out in the streets regularly, this time in Milwaukee. After almost 50 years, Charles Manson is suddenly relevant again.

So much for the “post-racial president.”

Just wait ’til next year, and the “post-gender president.” Will women get to riot, shoot cops and pull people out of their cars? Boy am I gonna whoop it up then. I’ll be like the 50-foot woman rampaging through the suburban streets. Happy days. Go Progress!
