Shop Talk

Terry McAuliffe has done more than any single person to wreck the Democrats as a national party. Some might argue that the biggest share of the blame goes to Bill Clinton, but I disagree. Getting elected then reelected was a bright blip on the chart of long-term Democratic decline.


Now this:

. . .on a morning of bitter misgivings for Democrats there were also rumblings in Mississippi, California, New York, Washington, D.C., and elsewhere, with many party rank- and-file members complaining that the DNC has written off the South, taken black voters for granted and picked a poor 2004 convention site in Boston.

Could it be? Could the Democrats finally have had enough of their incompetent chairman? I dunno — the lede reads like this:

Democrats across the country rallied to support Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairman Terry McAuliffe yesterday, a day after the party lost governorships in Kentucky and Mississippi and less than four weeks after losing the gubernatorial race in California.

Can somebody please tell me why?
