11. Agree totally with the statement that

"a lot of North Carolinians don't know what they're asking for" --I'm sure the incoming Rethugs will get to work real soon--and so there's hope for some serious buyer's remorse to set in.

Racism re. Obama himself was fueled by racism renewed at state level--ie. worries about changing demographics and trumped-up fears of "socialism." These are your predictable racists, the old Helms crowd now inspired by Fux and Rush.

You have to distinguish them from the big money Rethuglicons. The fat cats have less of a problem with Obama's race, since he is of their socio-economic class. But they will crassly capitalize on racism in their lo-info bedfellows.

In addition to getting Teabagged & Koched, we got badly skunked by the business & banking sector IMO, for whom race is not nearly as much of an issue as Mon-ey. NC is targeted for a level of economic exploitation that may make Sleazely's personal perks look like peanuts.

I like your optimism John2--and I hope NC liberals don't just slink away in shame. This is NOT the time to do that.
