White-people (political) problems? Analyzing new research that contradicts conventional wisdom, one PostBourgie writer says, "Obama's issues with white folks -- or Southern whites, really -- isn't a new phenomenon for Democratic presidential candidates."

Madonna: Black Muslim in the White House: Looks like the artist is one of the few people who still believe the lies about the president's religion, and also thinks they're great. "Y'all better vote for f--king Obama, OK? For better or for worse, all right? We have a black Muslim in the White House. Now, that's some amazing s--t," she said. "It means there is hope in this country. And Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man, goddamnit." Somewhere, a Birther or Tea Party member is kicking himself.
