  •  Hooray for NC! (none)
    And frankly I don't think VA, SC, and even GA should be abandoned.  They all have the odd blue country from which truth and light can be easily spread.
    •  I would like to point out (none)
      that in Ms, we carried both the most rural and most urban counties.  That's right:  In the rural Delta, where the poverty is back-breaking and the unempolyment is 70% (not a typo, 70%), the people know which side their bread is buttered on.  In Hinds county where the capitol of Jackson is (pop 181,000 71% black, 28% white, 1% latino/other) we carried the rgion overwhelmingly.  

      So, why isn't MS BLUE, you ask?  That's right, its those pesky white flight suburbs.  Pretty much the rest of the state is either a Jackson suburb, a Memphis suburb, or part of the coastal Casinocray.  We made real gains on the coast, and actually carried a couple of Memphis suburban areas (as well as 2 counties bordering mine...and got damn close in Oktibbeha where I live...).  What we need is a little seed money, some polling and research help, etc from the national party, and we can make a run for it.  Want to demoralize the Republicans?  TAKE MISSISIPPI FROM THEM!  This is not bullshit, it's not pie in the sky...we can get this state if we pull for it!
