OUR LABORATORIES OF DEMOCRACY are moving toward one-party rule.

The federal government may be locked up in an extended state of bipartisan gridlock, but our fifty nifty United States have been moving towards clear-cut majorities not seen in these numbers in decades. . . .

This is going to be an interesting phenomenon to watch during the next four years of a continued Obama economy. As the choices made by individual states become more starkly partisan and the results start rolling in, we’re going to be able to compare apples to apples — and I’d bet good money that red states are going to start seeing significant gains in areas over which they have control.

Probably true, but if one-party rule persists over the long term it will be a bad thing, regardless of which party is involved.
