Was this election the tipping point for the old angry, white (male) voter?

Demographically, we all knew it was coming, but I didn't expected it to happen this soon.They had the hate machine ginned up at full throttle, but it just wasn't enough. People of of all ages and colors turned out in record numbers to shout, "Enough!" All that's left in the wake is wailing and gnashing of teeth.

So, is it the end of the road for the angry white voter?
If so, what next now that we are in charge?

1. I think the AWM meme is a distraction....

What we have to worry about is the corporatist wing of both parties.

They're still taking over, bit by bit.

2. The thing that kept bothering me, was there line "The American People, basically agree with us".

 

What a full load load of crap that was. Don't know who they were expecting to sell that to, "shakes head".

4. As long as it is Democratic anger

aimed at the GOP.

I guess I should be more clear -- the traditional voting block the GOP counts on to turn out at the polls to keep them in power by scaring them with fallacies about women, gays and guns.
