On a much more serious note
Hilzoy--guesting for Kevin Drum-- brings it on Ferraro's latest stupid rant. He points out that she really doesn't give a good reason for "Reagan Democrats" to oppose Obama, leaving one with the distinct impression that it, in fact, is race. Of course there's also the irony of the woman who helped invent the "Reagan Democrats" now giving advice to Obama on how to court them. Anyway it's a great post, and not because he quoted me. Here I am speaking on it, in my last post over at Matt's.
