BREAKING NEWS

  • PERRY/Clinton Trumped in Miss.
    Wednesday, November 30, 2016 6:00 PM
    Republican Donald J. Trump carried Mississippi with 57.9 percent of the vote for President of the United States on November 8, earning him Mississippi’s six votes in the Electoral College. He received a greater percentage of the vote than Republicans Mitt Romney in 2012 (55.3 percent) or John McCain in 2008 (56.2 percent), but fell short of President George W. Bush’s re-election in 2004 when Bush took 59.5 percent. Trump’s 700,714 raw votes bested Bush’s 684,981 votes from 2004; but, Trump fell short of the raw votes posted by Romney (710,746) and McCain (724,597).

    Over the past few decades, party loyalty has been the defining feature of national politics. Especially in the House but even in the Senate, members deferred to their party leaders. Congress as a whole deferred to the presidency. Members of the president’s own party acted as his foot soldiers. Members of the other party acted as his opposition.

    But Donald Trump’s victory smashes all that. He is hostile to the Republican establishment. His proposals cut across orthodox partisan lines.
  • LOWRY/Can Democrats quit identity politics?
    Wednesday, November 30, 2016 6:00 PM
    For the Democrats, no activity is immune from reflexive accusations of sexism and racism, not even soul-searching.

    The initial postelection debate on the left has brought some tentative breaks with the party’s oppressive and self-limiting identity politics. And they have been met, predictably, with a furious counterattack wielding all of the usual rhetorical weapons of identity politics — lest fresh air penetrate the intellectual and political hothouse where transgender bathroom issues loom incredibly large and it is forbidden to say “all lives matter.”
