I heard one of Nancy Pelosi's daughters on the radio this afternoon saying she hadn't made up her mind between Hillbot and Obama.
"I'm having to choose between my gender and my generation," Pelosi Jr. said. So white men who favor other white men are excused? Obviously it's been that way for generations, but should it be perpetrated by other identity groups?
I suppose if Barney Frank were to seek the presidency I'd have no choice but to vote for him, as a fellow gay white male. But what if a Southerner in his 30s opposed him? Does orientation and pigmentation trump regional and generational identification?
And we fret over Iraqi tribalism.
