TO MAINTAIN THE BOGUS RACE-CARD NARRATIVE ON THE ADEGBILE DEBACLE, NPR SAYS “A HANDFUL OF SOUTHERN DEMOCRATS” JOINED REPUBLICANS TO VOTE AGAINST HIM.

Here are the folks NPR considers “Southern Democrats.”

Chris Coons (Del.)

Bob Casey (Pa.),

Mark Pryor (Ark.),

Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.),

Joe Manchin (W.V.),

Joe Donnolly (Ind.)

John Walsh (Mont.)

And of course Harry Reid (Nev.) who did it for procedural grounds.

Not exactly Sons of the Confederacy.

Welcome to Dixie, North Dakotans!

UPDATE: Related: Shaheen dodges reporters after controversial vote. “New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen fled the scene of the vote Wednesday – following her decision to support President Obama’s controversial nominee for U.S. Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights.” So it was “controversial” in that stronghold of the Old South, New Hampshire.

ANOTHER UPDATE: From the comments: “Bipartisanship is the new racism.”

MORE: Yeah, the version that’s online now has changed. As I’ve noticed before, they do that. I saw Jonah Goldberg tweeting with a producer — sorry, can’t find the tweet now it’s buried — who was saying that it was written as “Senate Democrats” but read as “Southern Democrats” and promising that it would be fixed in later feeds.
