I like this WaPo writer’s humor

because it really underscores, in my mind at least, just how bad things have become here in post racial America
Trying to predict the gender and race of a member of Congress is like trying to predict who would win a basketball game between the 1996 Chicago Bulls and the 2015 New York Knicks. Which is to say: It is like trying to predict who would win in an arithmetic competition between you and a talking horse. Which is to say: It is like trying to guess how many jellybeans are in a glass jar that contains two jellybeans. Which is to say: It is easy.
Which is to say it’s overwhelmingly white men; 80% white men who will do everything in their power to conserve and stay in power. Then I read where “lawmakers” are starting to pushback on the assault to reproductive rights and become more assertive?!?! C’mon, who did they think they’re kidding? Do they think those 80% white guys give a damn about reproductive rights? Really?
