What if the situation were reversed? If McCain had won, would an Obama supporter have been the focus of a riot? Republicans don’t riot. It would mess up their Brooks Brothers suits. There may have been some name calling, but the threat of violence would not be there. Obama supporters are quick to take offense, especially racial offense. During an Obama administration we will not see the type of disrespect that we got to know so well, like the “Buck Fush” signs and bumper stickers. Obama supporters are not going to put up with that and – to keep the peace – we’ll see a lot more police action and a lot more sensitive college administrators like the ones at Purdue.
