    I'm glad they are too embarrassed or cowed by their base to show up and it deserves mockery. Yes, the Republicans are finally paying an electoral price for the southern strategy but for 2 generations the GOP tactic of using civil rights issues to build an electoral coalition around racist white southerners has been a huge success.

    From 1968 until 2008 we have basically been a nation built around the resentments of white conservatives (especially southerners)and the plutocrats who used their grievences to take economic advantage.

     The southern strategy has cost America, economically, politicall, and morally dearly. We shouldn't forget that.
