I AGREE WITH DANIEL DREZNER: Lots of people are going to be reading Thomas Frank's What's the Matter with Kansas? How Conservatives Won the Heart of America.
I haven't read the book, so I don't know if he has the right answer -- from the Amazon blurb I'd say not -- but at least he's asking the right questions.
UPDATE: Or maybe not. I had forgotten -- until reader Angie Schultz reminded me of it -- Josh Chafetz's savage panning of this book in The New York Times.
