    Keep an eye out on next Tuesday’s special elections in Ohio. In OH-15, Trump has endorsed, and is all-in, on coal executive Mike Carey, while the “Establishment” is behind State Rep. Jeff LaRe. It’ll be another test of Trump’s muscle post-presidency. In this instance, Carey does appear to be more of an underdog than Wright was in TX.
    The OH-11 special election to replace now-HUD Secretary Marcia Fudge is between progressive Nina Turner and “centrist” Shontel Brown. Turner has the backing of AOC and Sanders, while Clyburn and others are behind Brown. Turner has been ahead in polls most of the way, but Brown is closing.

      Yeah, I did think it is basically a map of the migration of racists from the Democratic party to their natural home among the other authoritarians on the Right.

      It's a visual documentation of us cleansing ourselves of Nazis. So, good. Now let's just get rid of the red dots entirely.

      • Frankly, I think that map represents the rise of far right-wing radio/irritainment, which is now being even further exacerbated by social media.

          That certainly made the Right break off from reality and go up their own anus into the Eagle's Nest. But we can't forget just what fascist garbage the Dixiecrats were. They were only ever along for the pork.

            • President Donald Trump's political action committee, the Make America Great Again Action PAC, bought $348,081 worth of advertising Tuesday to support Trump-backed candidate Mike Carey in a GOP primary in Ohio's 15th District, according to forms filed with the Federal Election Commission.
            • The large, last-minute ad purchase, the group's first in the 2022 cycle, was made the same day that another Trump backed House candidate, Susan Wright, lost in a special election in Texas 6th District.
            • The former president has staked his entire political brand on his status as a kingmaker in the Republican party. A second loss for a Trump-backed candidate in as many weeks would put a serious dent in Trump's aura of invincibility.

                People still want to believe this. How many times in 2016 did we hear "this will kill him"?

                  Same, but it's interesting to see the Dixie-crats move to the GOP...

                    The Dixie-crat argument would be they haven't moved positions on issues and the D have become dominated by coastal liberals nee progressives nee socialists nee communists. But D motion away would require R motion toward the Dixie-crats, and I don't believe that happened, quite the opposite.

                        So is your argument that the Dixie-crats left the party because the coasts took the Party extreme Left? Even leaving aside that there is about as big a gap between the Dems and Communism as there is between all the Aleutian Islands you seem to be forgetting something kinda big that happened that made them leave. I will give you a hint...it started with Truman and kicked into high gear under Kennedy and Johnson.

                        Pretending the Dixie-crats left for any reason other than "We dont want no rights for dem Darkies" is the type of revisionist history I expect out of Texas textbooks or Faux News. Please tell me I read your post wrong.

                        • Every piece of evidence is that the Dixiecrats moved to the GOP because the Democrats started passing civil rights rules, first within their own party (the convention floor fights with Dixiecrats went all the way back to the 40s) and then for legislation in general in the 60s.

                          We purged our Afrikaners and the GOP welcomed them with open arms and open legs because they fit right in.

                            Only $350,000?

                            Not a million or two?

                            I guess it makes sense, spend that money on other people and its less you have to funnel into your own businesses.

                                I never could figure LBJ out. By all rights the dude should have been another Strom Thurmond or at best a Robert Byrd. But he was, apparently, the real deal. Actually committed to something like racial justice, or as close as you were gonna get in 1964 anyway. How did that happen? Was he just 6 sigma off the mean?
