  •  That's why a 50-state national policy for the DNC (19+ / 0-)

    is absolutely urgent.

    Kansas could easily elect a couple Democrats to Congress and move ahead more in the legislature.  

    But there is precious little help organizing and money coming into the state.  It is utterly wrong for the DCCC, the DNC, and the DSCC to write off the state (and lots of other states) like that.  A little money, some email lists, some local organizing and GOTV would go a long way.

    As they are showing, these Republicans are truly rePUGnant.  A solid Democratic candidate could make a lot of headway with these nutcases as opponents.

    •  It's nearly the same here in Oklahoma (8+ / 0-)

      The feeling that, as a democrat, you are on an island surrounded by well armed bible-thumping sharks is dare I say typical.  
      Standing in line to vote this past November there were plenty of people voicing conservative opinions out loud. It was rather sickening.  The few bastions of liberal veins running through the state can't compete with the onslaught from the right, who speaks to their constituents constantly from the local media to the preacher's pulpit.  
      I'm afraid this prolonged knee-jerk reaction over Obama's first victory, now followed by a (God forbid!) second term, has hardened their hearts and sent their pea-pickin' grey matter into an absolute chaotic frenzy.
      Only the complete failure of state government and the realization that Hussein Obama's black zombie hoard will never arrive to devour their churches and eat their high caliber bullets but are indeed an insidious myth made by those that have now ruined what was once a great place will bring them back from Never-Ever Land. Sigh...

      •  A good friend joked "Democrats in the Closet" (3+ / 0-)

        That there are real concerns about coming out as a democrat in some communities to the level that they hide it at almost all cost.

        But, that can change.
