After the election I noted that the Democrats could chart one of two courses. They could find a few core principles and build a loyal opposition in support of those policies or they could entrench themselves behind the belief that most people in America are racist Bible-thumpers who want to intern gays in camps.

Lawrence O’Donnell just said perhaps the most amazing things I’ve ever heard from a political pundit ever this morning. On the “McLaughlin Group”, he actually used the word “secession”. He says that, in his estimation, we will see the blue states attempt to secede (without firing a shot, of course) from the red states. Why? […]
