    As a southern progressive, I find that some of our northern colleagues assume that everyone south of the Mason Dixon line is on board with the Tea Party.  I've seen a lot of comments on these boards about "Confederate states" and giving up on the south.  Even in the reddest states, there are progressives fighting to make a difference.  We could use more solidarity and less dismissive condescension.  
    And yes, I do appreciate a good snark.  But there's a lot of historical ignorance out there.  I apologize for assuming you were part of it.
