  •  No, it's not a "defeatist" attitude (5+ / 0-)

    Given the reality on the ground in conservative Indiana, and the hysterics about Muslims amped up by the right in the last two years, slating Carson would be folly, no matter how much progressives love him. He would have a difficult path even in New York, Illinois or California. In Indiana, no way, jose. Conservatives can stake out whatever ground they want; they own Indiana. Progressives are an eensy-beensy little minority; even Democrats — plain old regular and Blue Dog Democrats — have a rough time in this state.

    By the way, how many people are in that "active Muslim community"? Right.
