Must We Defeat the South Again?

Here's a fascinating analysis by Michael Lind, suggesting that our main obstacle to progress is not Republicans, but the South. As Lind notes:

The votes against Obama’s stimulus package came from a Southern confederacy of Republicans and conservative Democrats. Their message to America? Drop dead.
Word. Could we maybe lose the South now? Please? (Sorry, Jill--maybe you could relocate to Santa Fe?)

Let's do it (but move Disney World and the Harry Potter theme park first).

Santa Fe would be my first choice. Ol' El Paso might miss me though.
