The other night on the NJ Transit Train out of Penn Station, I noticed this drawn on the seatback in front of me:

nobama

And no, I didn’t do it.

But I thought about who would have. Was it a trader’s assistant on their way home from Goldman Sachs? Was it a secretary at the MTA? Or was it a dishwasher or messenger? Maybe a college student?

Odds are, it was someone from a demographic that Barack Obama thought he had wrapped up.
