    What I like the most about where we are now is that we're on the cusp of having a country where the dominant party doesn't have to ally with the bloc of white (usually southern) racists to get anything done.  

    We had fits and starts of it in 2009-11, and the Tea Party was a last-ditch attempt to reassert that bloc's role as kingmaker.  But the trend is inexorable... and in our favor.  Because if the Republicans ditch the racists, who have they got left?

    Conservatives need to realize that their Silent Moral Majority is neither silent, nor moral, nor a majority.
