The Daily Beast’s Michael Tomasky was really puckering while thinking about how sour those southern grapes probably are. It really showed in his column.
Practically the whole region has rejected nearly everything that’s good about this country and has become just one big nuclear waste site of choleric, and extremely racialized, resentment. A fact made even sadder because on the whole they’re such nice people! (I truly mean that.)
With Landrieu’s departure, the Democrats will have no more senators from the Deep South, and I say good. Forget about it. Forget about the whole fetid place. Write it off. Let the GOP have it and run it and turn it into Free-Market Jesus Paradise. The Democrats don’t need it anyway.
We didn’t want to win those stupid Senate seats anyhow.
What does the left need anything for? Political power.
