What A Shame

Kevin Drum (11.16.080):
"For many years, the Democratic Party controlled the agenda of American politics and Southerners controlled much of the Democratic Party. So the South had enormous political influence.

Later, most Southerners switched to the Republican Party, but by then it was Republicans who controlled the agenda of American politics. So the South still had enormous political influence.

The South

"As of January 20th, however, the Democratic Party will control the American political agenda once again. But Southerners are still Republicans, which means that their political influence will be nearly nonexistent."

"In other words, for the first time since Reconstruction, the South will be almost completely shut out of national power."

Good fucking riddance.
