Several years ago, I heard the observation that the sign of a dominant political party in a democracy isn’t winning elections by huge margins. It’s consistently winning the close elections. That’s a sign that the winning party holds the support of the voters on the margin. In 2002 and 2004, the Republicans won the bulk of the close elections.

Now it’s 2008. And in that well-known bastion of liberalism, Mississippi.

I smell elephant roadkill, incoming.
