The ascendency of Barack Obama from community organizer to senator to presidential candidate led the late NPR commentator Daniel Schorr to herald the oncoming “post racial” political age.

That was early in 2008. This is now.

Here’s President Obama last night in Philadelphia — transcript via HAP:

“What the other side is counting on, what they’re counting on is your gonna staying home, they’re counting on your silence, they’re counting on your amnesia, they’re counting on your apathy, they’re counting on young people staying home and union members staying home and black folks staying home!”

Here’s the post-racial, post-partisan president bringing all Americans together:

Al Sharpton must be manning the TOTUS input keyboard these days.

I know who didn’t stay home from the rally yesterday — naked people and book throwers.

    Schorr was one of the first I heard use the term, at least as applied to Obama. I think it was picked up by the Obamaniacs after that.

    [...] I honestly cannot believe that we elected a POTUS that is as divisive as Obama is when it comes to race.

    The neighborhood simpleton taking a switch to the hornet’s nests. Put the nitwit’s helmet back on and get him back on his leash.

    America's Idi Amin Dada.

    The thing that really makes me angry is this germ standing in front of the national flag of my country while deliberately tearing the country apart.
