  •  They're in Mayberry RFD with Donna Reed, (5+ / 0-)

    where the few African Americans you see are maids and handymen, all the women are housewives, and the only real problem is Ricky's zit before the prom. The good old days that McDaniel pines for.

    •  Those WERE the days, my friend ... (4+ / 0-)
      Through the door there came familiar laughter.
      I saw your face and heard you call my name.
      Oh, my friend, we're older but no wiser,
      For in our hearts the dreams are still the same...
      The McDaniels of the world - I know a few like them - have not had to change much over their years. They live in the same house, go to the same church, see the same friends. If they have cable, they don't use it much.

      It's an intellectually gated community they live in, too. Change is disturbing. To them, with a few exceptions, they don't need much of it. If it does come about, they often see someone else's judgment in it, one more thing they don't know much about.

      And yes, every one is a Republican. Because that's what they - and their parents - were back then.

      2014 is HERE. Build up the Senate. Win back the House : 17 seats. Plus!
