The 2012 Election: Comprehensive Southern State Wrap Up

Even though he dissed the flag, the Confederacy elected Romney president, and New England elected Obama

Dixie

A close analysis of the 2012 presidential election reveals that two distinct nations voted on Nov. 6.

Mitt Romney was elected president of the Republic of Dixie in a landslide. He won a decisive victory over Barack Obama in the electoral college in the Confederacy, 148 to 42.

He won the White majority in every Southern state including Virginia and Florida (61% of the White vote) to Mississippi (89% of the White vote). In what is being described as a resounding victory for conservatism, the overwhelming majority of native White Southerners voted against Barack Obama for the second time.

The New York Times reports:

“NEW ORLEANS — In Bibb County, Ala., on Tuesday, a Democrat named Walter Sansing was in a race for county commissioner against a Republican named Charles Beasley, who was on the ballot despite the inconvenience of having died several weeks earlier. Mr. Beasley won.

That is what kind of Election Day it was in the South. Elsewhere Republicans may be wailing and gnashing teeth, but in the mid- and Deep South states, they had yet another cycle of unchecked domination. . .”

Here are some of the highlights of the 2012 election:

– Mitt Romney won the presidency and Republicans retained their supermajority in the Confederate Congress.

– Republicans won a supermajority in the North Carolina and Tennessee state legislatures.

– Republicans seized control of the Arkansas state legislature for the first time since Reconstruction. They now control the state legislature and governorship of 12 Southern states, the state legislatures in 13 Southern state states, and at least one house of the state legislatures in 14 Southern states.

– Republicans have potentially won a supermajority in the Georgia state legislature which could give North Fulton County the power to secede from South Fulton County. Are we looking at Black Mecca Down?

– In 12 of the 15 Southern states, Republicans either maintained their numbers or picked up seats from Democrats in the state legislatures. Florida, Texas, and Missouri are the exceptions to the rule.

– Republicans picked up 9 House seats in Kentucky, Oklahoma, Arkansas, South Carolina, Georgia, North Carolina, and Texas. Democrats picked up 2 new seats in Texas, 2 new seats in Florida, flipped two seats in Florida, but lost 6 seats elsewhere in the South.

– Republicans won three Senate races in Texas, Tennessee, and Mississippi. Democrats won four Senate races in Missouri, Virginia, West Virginia, and Florida.

– Yankee carpetbaggers in Northern Virginia and the I-85 corridor in Central Florida are responsible for tipping those two states to Obama by voting in solidarity with the blacks and with Hispanic, Asian, and Jewish voters.

– Were it not for the presence of these Yankees, Republicans would have won a solid victory in every Southern state, including Virginia and Florida.

Arkansas

In Arkansas, the Democrats lost control of both chambers of the Arkansas state legislature “for the first time since Reconstruction.” If this is starting to sound familiar, it is because the Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, and North Carolina state legislatures have all fallen to the Republicans within the last two years “for the first time since Reconstruction.”

The Republicans now control every House seat in Arkansas. In 2010, they picked up two House seats from Democrats. In 2012, they picked up the last Democratic-controlled House seat. This is up from controlling just one House seat in Arkansas in the 2009-2011 111th Congress.

Arkansas State House

As of November 2012: 43 Republicans, 53 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 51 Republicans, 48 Democrats

Arkansas State Senate

As of November 2012: 15 Republicans, 20 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 21 Republicans, 14 Democrats

Tennessee

In Tennessee, the Republicans added to their 2010 gains, reelected Sen. Bob Corker, and secured a supermajority in the Tennessee state legislature “for the first time since Reconstruction.”

In the 2010 midterm elections, Republicans won three House seats in Tennessee. They retained control of all their House seats in the 2012 elections. The Democrats have been pushed back to their black urban enclaves in Nashville and Memphis.

Tennessee State House

As of November 2012: 64 Republicans, 34 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 67 Republicans, 24 Democrats

Tennessee State Senate

As of November 2012: 20 Republicans, 13 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 24 Republicans, 9 Democrats

Mississippi

Mississippi doesn’t hold state elections again until 2015. The Republicans won control of the Mississippi state legislature “for the first time since Reconstruction” in the 2011 state elections. They also elected Phil Bryant as governor.

In the 2010 midterm elections, Republicans won two Blue Dog House seats from Democrats. They retained control of both of them in the 2012 elections. The Democrats have little chance of winning them back.

Mississippi State House

As of November 2012: 62 Republicans, 59 Democrats

Mississippi State Senate

As of November 2012: 30 Republicans, 21 Democrats

Alabama

It was a big night for Republicans in Alabama.

In Alabama, Chief Justice Roy Moore of Ten Commandments fame was sent back to the Alabama Supreme Court. Lucy Baxley, the last Democrat holding statewide office in Alabama, was defeated. Alabama voters also approved Amendment 6 which nullifies Obamacare in Alabama.

Like Mississippi, Alabama didn’t hold elections for the state legislature this year. In the 2010 midterm elections, Republicans picked up two House seats in Alabama. They retained control of all their House seats in the 2012 elections.

Alabama State House

As of November 2012: 64 Republicans, 40 Democrats

Alabama State Senate

As of November 2012: 22 Republicans, 12 Democrats

Louisiana

Like Alabama and Mississippi, Louisiana didn’t hold elections in 2012 to the state legislature. Louisiana went through its “Republicans control the state legislature for the first time since Reconstruction” moment in 2010 due to party switches among White Democrats. The Republicans further padded their margins in the Louisiana state legislature in the 2011 elections.

The only real change in Louisiana this year is the loss of one House seat due to reapportionment in Congress. When the Louisiana 3rd District race shakes out, Republicans will control 5 out of 6 House seats in Louisiana with Democrats pushed back to their black enclave in New Orleans.

Louisiana State House

As of November 2012: 58 Republicans, 45 Democrats

Louisiana State Senate

As of November 2012: 24 Republicans, 15 Democrats

Oklahoma

In Oklahoma, the Democrats lost control of their last House seat in Little Dixie. They also lost seats in the Oklahoma House and the Oklahoma Senate. The Democrats are now on the verge of extinction in Oklahoma.

Oklahoma State House

Before the 2012 Election: 68 Democrats, 31 Republicans
After the 2012 Election: 72 Republicans, 29 Democrats

Oklahoma State Senate

Before the 2012 Election: 32 Republicans, 16 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 36 Republicans, 12 Democrats

Missouri

In Missouri, which is more of a Midwestern state than a Southern state, it was a mixed night for the Republicans. Sen. Claire McCaskill soundly defeated Todd Akin in a high profile Senate race. Republicans picked up seats in the Missouri House and lost seats in the Missouri Senate.

Republicans retained control of both chambers of the Missouri state legislature. They also retained control of all their House seats in Missouri. They control 6 out of 8 House seats in Missouri. The Democrats have been pushed back to their urban enclaves in St. Louis and Kansas City.

Missouri State House

Before the 2012 Election: 105 Republicans, 54 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 110 Republicans, 53 Democrats

Missouri State Senate

Before the 2012 Election: 26 Republicans, 8 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 24 Republicans, 10 Democrats

Kentucky

It was a good night for Republicans in Kentucky.

In Kentucky, the Republicans finally succeeded in knocking off Rep. Ben Chandler in Lexington. They picked up four seats in the Kentucky House. It looks like they are going to add their numbers in the Kentucky Senate in a couple of close races.

Republicans will retain control of the Kentucky Senate. Democrats will retain control of the Kentucky House by a smaller margin. The same partisan shift that finally toppled the Democrats in Arkansas is now obviously underway in Kentucky which along with West Virginia remains the last foothold of Democrats in the Southern state legislatures.

Kentucky State House

Before the 2012 Election: 41 Republicans, 58 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 45 Republicans, 55 Democrats

Kentucky State Senate

Before the 2012 Election: 21 Republicans, 14 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: Pending

West Virginia

In West Virginia, Barack Obama lost every county to Mitt Romney, but Democrat Joe Manchin was reelected to the U.S. Senate. The Democrats retained control of the West Virginia state legislature and Nick Rahall’s House seat, but the same erosion of support for the Democratic Party in Arkansas and Kentucky is on display here as well.

West Virginia State House

Before the 2012 Election: 35 Republicans, 65 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 46 Republicans, 54 Democrats

West Virginia State Senate

Before the 2012 Election: 6 Republicans, 28 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 9 Republicans, 25 Democrats

North Carolina

Of all the Southern states, Republicans performed better in North Carolina than anywhere else in the 2012 election: they won (at least) three House seats from the Democrats, recaptured North Carolina’s electoral votes for Mitt Romney, won the North Carolina governor’s race, and won a supermajority in the North Carolina state legislature.

North Carolina State House

Before the 2012 Election: 67 Republicans, 52 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 77 Republicans, 43 Democrats

North Carolina State Senate

Before the 2012 Election: 31 Republicans, 19 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 32 Republicans, 18 Democrats

South Carolina

In South Carolina, Republicans picked up one seat in the South Carolina Senate. Democrats lost two seats in the South Carolina House. The Republicans also picked up South Carolina’s new House seat due to reapportionment.

South Carolina State House

Before the 2012 Election: 76 Republicans, 48 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 76 Republicans, 46 Democrats, 5 Independents

South Carolina State Senate

Before the 2012 Election: 27 Republicans, 19 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 28 Republicans, 18 Democrats

Georgia

Georgia is one of the most diverse states in America. As of 2011, the population of Georgia was 55.5% White.

In spite of this, the Republicans managed to pick up seats in both the Georgia Senate and the Georgia House. With 119 Republicans in the Georgia House, the Republicans are only one vote shy of a supermajority in the Georgia state legislature, and it looks like they are going to get the supermajority by winning over Independent Rep. Rusty Kidd who will probably caucus with Georgia Republicans.

As Paul Kersey has explained at SBPDL, a Republican supermajority in the Georgia state legislature would empower Georgia Republicans to create new counties, which could potentially result (among other things) in the secession of North Fulton County and the recreation of Milton County in North Atlanta. Are we one vote away from Black Mecca Down?

John Barrow, the last White Southern Democrat in the House from the Deep South, survived and was reelected to the due to Mitt Romney crossover voters. The Republicans did win the new open House seat in Georgia due to reapportionment.

Georgia State House

Before the 2012 Election: 114 Republicans, 63 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 119 Republicans, 60 Democrats

Georgia State Senate

Before the 2012 Election: 36 Republicans, 20 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 38 Republicans, 18 Democrats

Virginia

Virginia is one of the states that didn’t hold state elections in 2012.

In Virginia, the big news is that Tim Kaine was elected to the Senate, Barack Obama won Virginia, and Republicans retained the three House seats that they won in the 2010 midterm elections. Democrats have been pushed back to the DC suburbs in NOVA and Robert Scott’s gerrymandered Virginia 3rd District which subsumes the blacks of Richmond and Hampton Roads.

As we have already seen, changing racial demographics cannot explain the Obama/Kaine victory in the Old Dominion. In Virginia, blacks were 20% of the electorate, Hispanics were 5% of the electorate, and Asians were 3% of the electorate. In Alabama, blacks were 28% of the electorate, which is the same share of the non-White vote in Virginia.

There were more non-White votes for Obama in Alabama because blacks broke 95% to 5% for Obama whereas Asians and Hispanics broke less decisively for Obama in Virginia. Romney lost Virginia because he only won 61% of the White vote. He easily won Alabama because he won 84% of the White vote.

The difference between Whites in Virginia and Alabama is Yankee transplants in Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads. If you compare John McCain’s performance in 2008 to Mitt Romney’s performance in 2012, you will see Romney overperformed McCain in the rest of the state where native Virginians live.

White voters in Northern Virginia who voted for Bush in 2004 sunk Mitt Romney in 2012.

Virginia State House

As of November 2012: 53 Republicans, 44 Democrats, 2 Independents

Virginia State Senate

As of November 2012: 20 Republicans, 20 Democrats

Texas

The biggest problem for the proponents of the “changing racial demographics” sunk Mitt Romney thesis is unquestionably Texas.

This is a state which is 44.8% white, 12.2% black, 38.1% Hispanic, and 4% Asian. If the “Romney was doomed by demographics” thesis is true, then Obama should have easily won Texas. In fact, 38.1% of the population of California is Hispanic, which is the exact same percentage as Texas.

In Texas, Republicans retained control of both the Texas House and Texas Senate, but lost their supermajority in the Texas House. Joe Straus, the speaker of the Texas House, is under attack by conservatives who want to overthrow him. This is probably a good thing considering that Texas Republicans squandered their supermajority by refusing to pass the immigration reform that is so wildly popular with their base after their huge victory in the 2010 midterm elections.

Immigration is the most important issue on the minds of voters in Texas. The overwhelming majority of Texans support tougher immigration laws that have been blocked for years by the pro-business wing of the Texas GOP.

Ted Cruz was elected to the U.S. Senate. Even though he is Hispanic, I have heard that he is an improvement on immigration over Kay Bailey Hutchinson. In the House, Democrats won three of the four new House seats due to reapportionment, and Republicans and Democrats exchanged control of Texas 23 and Texas 25.

Texas State House

Before the 2012 Election: 100 Republicans, 48 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 95 Republicans, 55 Democrats

Texas State Senate

Before the 2012 Election: 19 Republicans, 12 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 19 Republicans, 12 Democrats

Florida

In Florida, another state that failed to pass immigration reform, the Republicans lost seats in the Florida House and Florida Senate, but retained their majority in the Florida state legislature.

Obama narrowly won the state and Ben Nelson was reelected to the Senate. Florida won two new seats from reapportionment. Alan Grayson is back in power in the new seat in Orlando area. Tea Party darling Col. Allen West has refused to concede his House race. Democrats also took over two seats in South Florida.

The story in Florida is much the same as in Virginia: Obama narrowly won Florida and the Democrats picked up seats in the Florida state legislature by overperforming in South Florida and the I-5 corridor between Tampa and Orlando.

In 2004, 2008, and 2012, John Kerry and Barack Obama won 42%, 42%, and 37% of the White vote in Florida. The reason the presidential race was so close in Florida this year was because of Obama’s decline in the White vote. The only reason the Democrats are competitive in Florida is because they get 2x more of the White vote in Florida than in Georgia.

In Florida, the blacks were 13% of the electorate and Hispanics were 17% of the electorate, and Obama only won 60% of “the Hispanic vote” in Florida. Romney lost Florida because he only won 61% of the White vote there.

The same Yankee transplants who reelected Alan Grayson as their avatar in Orlando won Florida for Obama.

Florida State House

Before the 2012 Election: 81 Republicans, 38 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 74 Republicans, 46 Democrats

Florida State Senate

Before the 2012 Election: 28 Republicans, 12 Democrats
After the 2012 Election: 26 Republicans, 14 Democrats

  1. Very interesting and encouraging stats from the South, HW. And Civil War II is going split the entire nation along an L-shaped axis running from the south thru Texas and Arizona, then up through the Midwest into the High Plains, and over to the eastern slope areas of Oregon and Washington. What I find most exciting is that 4 states have now nullified Obamacare. That’s one short step away from secession. Beyond this, the most important point is that there are no Blue states…only Blue cities. We have the Jews and their FreeShitArmy – blacks, browns, yellows, white cosmics/gov’t employees – surrounded. I can only keep repeating: weapon up. Combat rifle + sidearm. This isn’t America anymore. It’s Spain…1936.

  2. It makes me sad to see Southron White men vote for the party of lincoln but I understand they do so because they see the gop as the traditional White man’s party

    Oh well. One more think to work on

    bullshit it on the jews. once again yankees did these things before the jew showed up. It’s an inherent fault in the yankee dna or something but you can’t blame it on the jews when you look at the historical behaviors of yankees

  3. Encouraging indeed! However, time is not on our side as you know. The glee from the left is due to the coming explosion of Mexicans coming of voting age. This will be in the days of our children.

  4. @HW: You’re spot on re Virginia. I’d like to see you break down the vote between Nova, Tidewater and Richmond area (Henrico and Chesterfield). I think Richmond area whites probably went 2:1 for Romney.

  5. One funny thing is for all of the Catholic crying about Obama, Catholics voted in big numbers for Obama. Let’s not forget: Hispanics = Catholics =Latinos.

    Big legal & illegal immigration boosters like Polish Catholic Marcy Kaptur, Italian
    Catholic Nancy Pelosi, and Irish Catholics like Patty Murray & the Bob Casey all supported Obama!

  6. The yankees are always playing the pharisee in the parable of the publican and the pharisee. They are always saying to themselves – “thank my atheistic self that I didn’t make myself into a bigot like those dim-witted, buck-toothed, inbred hillbilly trash in the south!” The yankees are a bunch of hypocrites too because they have the zoning laws set up so they never have to live around their pets. They are also willing to put any burden on whites so that they can maintain their control over the levers of power: “And you experts in the law, woe to you, because you load people down with burdens they can hardly carry, and you yourselves will not lift one finger to help them”.

  7. My brother in law worked in Maine. He said they were careful to ensure the lack of minorities in their own cities by a number of underhanded laws. Mainly zoning.

  8. I want to calculate the raw white vote for Obama:

    Total vote x % white vote x % white vote for Obama

    And also McCain and Romney.

    By state.

    My hypothesis is that the white support for Obama has gone down in a healthy way, but also declined for Romney as well.

    Where can I get that raw info?

  9. I’m playing with the numbers from last tuesday atm as well – when i should be working. I want to see what the avg IQ for each candidates voting block was.

    Total amount of white voters was 85,925,519.
    50,696,056 broke for Romney
    33,510,952 renigged
    1,718,511 voted for someone else

  10. Jews own the money and the media. I seriously doubt that a majority of Whites would be and self-genocided, had they ever been exposed to the facts.

    Heve ya’ll read the lastest out of Israel? Jew gloats over the destruciton of Europe and Christianity.

    http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4299673,00.html

    Ya think they won’t come after Dixie AGAIN? How many mosques are being raised even now, South of the Mason Dixon line?

  11. We get it, Yankees suck, South is wonderful, ad infinitum.

    I have no idea why you persist in the fantasy that Southern independence has any chance of success. How’d that work out for ya last go-round?

    In 1861 the USA was still a non-entity in the global power game, now it is the global hegemon, and will be for a couple more decades at least. DC has a lot to lose, they know it, and they will fight to keep the country intact.

    It will be a re-run of the last time, but now it won’t take 4 years to subdue the rebellion; technology means they can decapitate any resistance quickly. Drones will have the same effect over Alabama as they do over Yemen.

    The only chance for Southern secession actually working is in the event of full state collapse in the USA – which will eventually happen, I am confident, but it’s quite a few decades away.

    So the only thing to do now is either determine a way to survive in the USA until 2050 or after, when all readers here will be old or dead, or plan on emigration.

    I choose the latter.

  12. The first order of business for the southern legislatures should be to nullify the LEGAL immigration policies of the US as a genocidal program initiated by self-hating whites who are genociding themselves through their support of abortion and gay rights. They are so drunk with their sins that they would never consider having more white children to further their agenda – they would rather import a boatload of non-white never-to-become americans so that they can continue to compete demographically with the whites of the south.

    That is really the problem, isn’t it? If the democratic party (1) stopped using non-white legal and illegal immigrants in proxy wars against intact white enclaves throughout the US (HW – the democrats are even attacking intact white enclaves in the north with diversity) and (2) stopped imposing their social agenda on whites who disagree 2/3s of the dispute would disappear overnight, right?

    Whites have the moral high ground on continued non-white immigration. So many jews have gone public with their glee about the coming genocidal white apocalypse that they have lost the high ground. Their pronouncements should be exhibits A – Z in a campaign to end the immigration-as-ethnic-warfare strategy of the democratic party. If southern legislatures went loudly public with the pronouncements of Debbie W-S and Tim Wise’s of the world fellow whites could easily be shamed into capitulation. If they cannot be shamed into capitulation whites who do not want self-genocide need to know as soon as possible.

  13. Further, the southern states should put the federal immigration policy to a public vote. When it is soundly rejected by even non-whites the route to self-determination will have been established.

  14. Republicans have supermajority in both chambers of the Missouri legislature. If they stay united, Missouri will have photo ID for voting and stronger immigration legislation in 2013.

    I’ve already said it on my own blog and on AR, and I’ve been hinting around this all summer and fall long, so since you bought it up here, I might as well come out and say it whole hog, in case you weren’t able to put two and two together based on my hint dropping. I was a Todd Akin staffer, and most likely would have been a permanent Senate staffer if he would have won.

    That said, I know stuff, and over time, I’m going to start talking.

  15. Yes, the Confederate South is now solidly White Republican, a complete reversal from the Confederate South, “Yellow Dog Democrat South” of ~ 1955.

    On paper, that’s good, but that’s just on paper.

    Now our side has to do the hard, hard work of organizing, educating and doing solid pro White activism at the state and local Southern level.

    Our enemies know how to corrupt at the top (look for lots of Religious Right/Religious Wrong pro cheap NW neo slave labor traitors like Mike “The Huckster” Huckabee), pro military, Neo Con job wars still have lots of appeal amongst White Christian Zionists based in the South), also they know how to channel justifiable Southern frustration in to hating White Gentiles in the Midwest, North – come up with trivial Christian church affiliations, like BRA is all the fault of Catholics, Mormons etc.

    We have to do the hard work to know and influence all these Southern GOP state representatives. David Duke was an effective GOP Southern State representative, people knew him and he was doing good things. We need thousands of state reps like David Duke.

    BRA subversion/takeover of the top of the Southern Baptists is huge. What’s the plan there?

    When is our own Hunter Wallace going to run and win State representative in Alabama. I will strongly support, fund, make phone calls, go door to door for Hunter… this will set off conspiracy theory Kooks that Hunter Wallace is controlled by…

    YANKEES FROM OBAMA’S NEIGHBORHOOD IN CHICAGO!

  16. “The only chance for Southern secession actually working is in the event of full state collapse in the USA – which will eventually happen, I am confident, but it’s quite a few decades away.”

    Financial collapse of the Federal government and some of the big blue states is just around the corner. Even the most draconian proposals for fiscal reform that are currently on the table ie. “The Ryan Plan” are only a drop in the bucket of what is needed. No one is proposing freezing the budget in actual nominal dollars. No one is talking about taking a meat axe to the Pentagon or the “surveillance state” budgets nor are they talking about means testing Social Security or taking the income cap off of the SS and Medicare payroll withholding taxes. And those types of austerity measures would have to be taken to start in on any meaningful avoidance of federal default on the debt or hyperinflation that would lead to default on the debt.

    The end is coming sooner than you think.

  17. “Are you going to lump in all of those black Protestants into the total Protestant vote? Seems only fair.”

    Speaking from afar as a nominal Lutheran, the anti-Catholic prejudice on this site is simply a reflection of the extremely strong anti-papist religious tradition of the Southern Baptist and Presbyterian churches of the South in which many of the commenters here were brought up in. When you are raised hearing every week that the Pope is the anti-Christ it tends to stick at some point.

  18. No Rudel that’s untrue. I’m Anglican, with a paternal Catholic line.
    I actually think there’s something WRONG with Irish Catholics in America. The Irsh themselves are not people who really carry a chip on the shoulder like the plastic paddies here. See Matthews, Biden, Odonnell, Hannity, Oreilly… Etc etc.

  19. Rudel says:
    ‘Even the most draconian proposals for fiscal reform that are currently on the table ie. “The Ryan Plan” are only a drop in the bucket of what is needed. ‘

    The Ryan plan is far from draconian.

  20. I ‘d say I have no beef with French Catholics either. They are no problem. But the bloody fools for Boston and what not… Yikes, they bathe in their grievances.

  21. “See Matthews, Biden, Odonnell, Hannity, Oreilly… Etc etc.”

    They don’t really count as you can’t get on TV unless you are PC. My experience is that the vast majority of Americans with Irish ancestry across the country are pretty much fully assimilated and intermarried with other Whites just like the Germans are except for some enclaves in cities like Boston and New York.

  22. “So the only thing to do now is either determine a way to survive in the [the once] USA until 2050 or after..”

    – Exactly. Be on the look out for the blog I’m starting. It’ll be centered around that very subject matter. As much as I like OD, there’s just no point in continuing to partcipate in the internecine sniping, historical blaming, speculation about what might have been, and idle chatter about new attempts at glorious failures. Dixie is dead. America is dead. Neither are ever coming back. The present is what it is, and we each have to deal with it.

  23. Rudel, read Bob Domersby, he’s a leftie but he has proven beyond a shadow of doubt that the Irish cohort in the press is very strange.

  24. Bob Somerby. He’s all over this Petraeus thing right now. I think they gave him the boot so that he wouldn’t get called by Congress to testify about Benghazi. Looks like Hillary may be making a fairly imminent exit too. She’ll be almost as old as Reagan was when she takes office in January 2017.

  25. “Bob Somersby”

    I’m all for working with leftists and anarchists when they demonstrate and riot against Israel, war, and the state in BDS and Occupy demonstrations. Any resistance to the state is good at this point.

  26. He has a unique way of analyzing the text. Strips back the language of couriers and reveals the craven power seeker. He’s like a political anti-autotuner.
