The Future of Math

If the Republic Party insists on continuing as the party of angry old white men, they are doomed.  And don’t blame the rednecks; privileged white kids at Ole Miss of all places shouted racist insults and burned Obama signs last night.  There is at least anecdotal evidence of other well-educated people giving themselves over to a sort of mass hysteria that simply would not exist if Obama was white guy Barry O’Toole from Schenectady.  I’ll talk about this at length more later, and let me emphasize that this is not an indictment of all Republicans as knuckle-dragging racists, but based upon the reactions I’ve seen so far I see little to no evidence that the GOP is in the mood for any sort of reflective soul-searching.
