The Bradley Effect

That is all.


  1. Rick, do you have an alternative link? The hulu clip won't display outside of the US.

  2. Hey Lars - unfortunately, no. Summarizing the clip: Jon Stewart points out that the Bradley Effect, widely believed to indicate that white people will tell pollsters they're willing to vote for a black man due to social pressure, but in fact will vote for a white candidate. And Stewart asks Barack: "Are you worried, given that your mother was white, that the white half of you will take over and vote for McCain?"

    Barack acknowledges it's a problem, and that he's been in therapy about it. :)

  3. A classic. Managed to find an alternative source at

    Also enjoyed the statement about sharing toys in kindergarten being a sign of latent socialism.

    Looking forward to change.
