Jonah Goldberg listened to an NPR story about the defeat in the Senate of radical Leftist lawyer Debo Adegbile to head the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. Per NPR, a “handful of Southern Democrats” (1) voted with the Republicans to defeat Adegbile. Here’s the roster:
- Chris Coons (Del.)
- Bob Casey (Pa.)
- Mark Pryor (Ark.)
- Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.)
- Joe Manchin (W.V.)
- Joe Donnelly (Ind.)
- John Walsh (Mont.)
- Harry Reid (NV)
Apparently I’m not as knowledgeable about US History as I thought; I completely missed Pennsylvania and Indiana joining the Confederacy, and I didn’t realize the South butted up against Canada.
NPR: “National Public Reactionaries.”
