my shirt’s been inside out, all day

I read this slick article about the changing political landscape in the Washington Post. man, have I been cheerleading for the Post recently.

“There is a realignment going on here. It’s a long-term shift that has to do with the economic decline in some areas in the modern economy,” said Larry Bartels, a political scientist at Princeton University.

the article goes on to suggest that the Democrats increasingly will not represent labor and the poor. to be honest, I can’t imagine the Democrats without labor. who the fuck would the party be for? the upper middle class, and twentysomethings with liberal arts degrees? I can barely hold a job! we can’t support shit!
