13 notes in one cover

In its classic tabloid style, the cover of the New York Post captures the leading storyline in last night’s results with characteristic concision.

In my 13 notes, I forgot to mention Republican Tim Scott’s crushing victory over his Democratic challenger in South Carolina. Senator Scott is of course a successful black Republican thriving in the heart of the old Confederacy. He symbolizes the phoniness of the Democrats’ persistent exploitation of the race card in American politics. That is one phony war that the Democrats cannot afford to quit on and that we can’t afford to let them win.
