Frank Discussion

Virtually everyone seems to be turning to Thomas Frank's book, What's the Matter With Kansas?, for an explanation about what happened in the election two weeks ago. I'm nonetheless struck by how many people seem to be missing Frank's main point.

Paul Street doesn't, so I encourage you to read his take on how the thesis of What's the Matter With Kansas? relates to the election and the future of the Democratic party. Also check out Frank's recent NY Times piece on this topic.
