I thought tea partiers were racist..........

How is it that the more tea partiers influence the republican party, the more diversity the republican party gains?

The exodus of white Democrats to the GOP in southern state legislatures this year is the last chapter of a very old story about realignment, one that -- in this homogenous media age -- has finally come to the most local levels of politics.

This, in Georgia, is something different -- and striking to insider because one of the switchers, Ashley Bell, is a former president of the College Democrats seen not that long ago as a Democratic rising star:

Maybe Ashley looked around and said to himself "Geez, we've kicked out all these programs and nothing's changed".
