I usually copy and paste from Steve Benen at the Washington Monthly, but this morning I’m just sending you all over to his place to read this whole post. It’s about the shifts in demographics in the states and the effect it will have on the 2012 election. A very great analysis and insight into how tough a climb the Republicans will have, especially if the Tea Party loudmouths continue to dominate the Republican agenda. Take a read and come back here and discuss if you feel inclined. Here is a granddaughter update…she just keeps getting smarter and smarter, she’s a little bit cute too.
