The Octogenarians

JTG and SB have brought to my attention that on the Monday evening preceding the Iowa caucus, Melissa Harris Perry of MSNBC and Wake Forest University,was verbally assaulted and threatened  in a public viewing room at her downtown Des Moines hotel.The threatener questioned her credentials and got to “I want you to understand why I’m doing this to you…”One of her students jumped in and the two women crying out and screaming sent the attacker running. He was seen driving away.There is little question that the encounter was both racial and  gender based.We shall see whether or not the police will find this person.This is certainly not a post racial America.Additionally I, for one, wonder whether a woman President might be at more risk of attempted assassination than even the incumbent black commander in chief.
