NYT Historical Revisionism

Oh good grief. Georgia’s first Republican governor since Reconstruction was elected in 2003. It was fairly the same across the South.

And we were supposed to have had racist Republican Senators in the 1960’s? I don’t think so. Up until Reagan, the South was blue. We didn’t make the switch to red (or at least, make the switch to being red with blue islands) until Reagan (or shortly thereafter), when all the southern Reagan Democrats began to join the GOP.

Upon Further Consideration, Later: You know, I don’t know if this is an example of revisionism or just an example of the NYT’s lack of knowledge/interest about anything that doesn’t involve Manhattan.

    It’s revisionism. The NYT is decidedly seditious and firmly intent on twisting the world to fit the Global Marxist views.

    You are likely right.

    Though, I do suspect a firm number of Manhattan-ites don’t know Georgia from Mississippi.

    True – since many of them don’t know Brooklyn form Queens I’m forced to extrapolate that they wouldn’t know much about more distant places.

    LOL – In case it doesn’t show from my comment, I live in Brooklyn. ;)

    Heh. Then you would know.
