The northern cluster of >60% precincts is the whitest part of the city (over 80% white), and appears fairly wealthy as well.

That cluster is the wealthiest part of the city. Pacific Heights right near the Presidio and just north of Jackson St (fun fact: Nancy Pelosi lives in this enclave, I've seen her in church). We are talking Hearst family and up type wealth. the real-life plutocrats.
We're talking the people who sacrifice human effigies to their owl god at Bohemian Grove, and as a sideline run the United States. Smiley

Insert relevant homophobic Nixon quote here.

How about the 21,381 people in DC who voted for the party whose core message is to destroy DC's economy?

Lobbyists.

I am surprised Romney didn't get more votes in DC since asides from history when you look at the demographics I would think Romney's support should be in the teens.  This means Obama got close to 80% of the white male vote and there are few if any other locations where Obama got over 2/3 of the white male vote.  In most parts of the US, the white males vote GOP but at the very least even in the more Democrat areas you always have quite a sizeable minority of white males who vote GOP.

As opposed to the 90.91% of the city who voted themselves jobs and public assistance paid for with other peoples' money

Right. Who doesn't want a job?

I'm sure somewhere out there, there were at least a couple of Hipsters so deeply seeped in their own irony that they voted for Romney ironically.


Wouldn't it be more ironic to write in Nader or vote Jill Stein
