30. No, in fact I overestimated
I had a sinking suspicion after the election that he would never take office because one of these psycho fucks would do something.

I'm very happy to see I was very wrong, and I hope my losing streak continues.

At the risk of sounding racist myself... It seems that it's mostly white people who are surprised at the virulence being directed at obama. Fair enough, not much is directed at whites in America, and it can be hard to see the subtle discrimination happening against people who aren't "you" so, the race-dar isn't quite so acute. But... Most of the rest of us knew all this was coming, and many probably still expect worse to arise, especially as the crazies get even more isolated - thankfully mainstream America IS set against blatant racism, and is starting to be able to perceive less-blatant racism as well.
