Kansas at the Forefront... Really

The Guardian (UK) reports that from Kansas to South Carolina, Republican moderates are turning their backs on the neocons -- RSR would add the religious right -- and defecting to the Democratic Party.

Writing from Topeka, Guardian reporter Paul Harris notes that "as the Democrats enjoy a resurgence, the Republicans are in disarray. [former state Republican chair Mark] Parkinson's defection encouraged other moderates to abandon a party controlled by right-wing religious zealots."

"The defections across the country have been spurred mostly by a reaction to the extremism of the right," writes Harris, who believes the "future, as Kansas predicts it, lies in the middle ground for the first party to stake a claim to it."
