Concerning Dixiephobia

Today Salon is featuring a piece I wrote (at their invitation) responding to Tom Schaller's post-election restatement of his hypothesis that Democrats should not only write off the South, but even campaign against the region in order to solidify a non-Southern majority. I'm not arguing for any particular focus on the South, but do think it's a mistake to write off whole regions, and a potentially disastrous mistake to attack a Southern culture that pervades so much of our latter-day national culture. Check it out.
