Good News For Republicans

Michael Barone of U.S. News and World Report has a new column on reshaping the electorate. If you watched Election 2004 coverage on Fox News, you'll know Barone as the analyst who was crunching the returns in real-time. His real claim to fame, though, is the Almanac of American Politics, THE source of information on the shape of America's electorate. All this is another way of saying, the guy has some idea of what he's talking about. And what he's talking about right now sounds good to my ears...

Barone says that today's electorate is the most Republican it has ever been, and he gives much of the credit to Ken Mehlman, who must have got a total of 3 hours sleep the last month of the campaign. Mehlman's reward was to be named the new Chairman of the National Republican Party. Kudos to Mehlman, and let me tell you, we couldn't be in better hands. Patrick Ruffini has this advice for the Democrats: brace yourselves.
