Glimmers of Hope for the GOP - HUMAN EVENTS

Pat and Chuck Todd explain well what voters were looking for in the last election but not so much why those voters believed that Obama is the man who can deliver. I suspect the reason is 'The Magical Negro'

From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magical_Negro

"The magical negro (sometimes called the mystical negro or magic negro) is a supporting, often mystical stock character in fiction who, by use of special insight or powers, helps the white protagonist get out of trouble."
--did anyone not see the droves of white folks hailing the Messiah? The ones here in Boston are from the whitest areas known to man. I doubt that the majority of them ever associate with black people in their day-to-day in any meaningful way. Maybe precisely this disconnect from reality that made it so easy for them to engage in fantasy. What else, other than his color, could they possibly find so inspiring and intriguing in this underachiever, affirmative action baby nobody?

Interesting comment from a reader at Human Events. Also from that comment:
