Fellow citizens and interstellar travelers,
There has long been discussion of the notion that men and women would give rise to different politics (there was a fight about letting women vote a century ago or so, wasn’t there? ;-) ) Today Nate Silver, an assiduous practitioner of applying observation and reason to polls and politics (and therefore also a purveyor of exceptionally accurate predictions), has a post detailing exactly what those differences are in our current presidential election. The discoveries are dramatic and reveal that women, literally, will be responsible for giving Civilization a fighting chance at persistence this November. Thank you women. Thank you.
In related news, today also provided us with a brilliant, and blistering, dissection of just how the GOP got here, courtesy of John Scalzi.
Yours in estrogenic gratitude, M.
