I was over at the Democratic Underground (ugh) and I happened on some one commenting on liberal Montana values.

Montana went for Bush by 20%. The also went for medical marijuana and a defeated a proposal to make cyanide leach mining rules easier.

Basically what has happened (as I predicted in my Death of Socialism piece) is that Montana has defined the new center. About where I predicted it would be. War. Capitalism. Leave Me Alone.

The poster makes the point that the Democrats have lost touch with the common man. Quite true. Then he goes on to say that part of the trouble is that the Dems don't have a message machine like the Republicans. He never considers that it is the wrong message.

Oh, well.
