MIDDLE AMERICA....Professor Bainbridge today:

Here we see the modern Democratic party - secular elites at the top using the levers of government to effect wealth transfers from Middle America to reliable Democrat constituencies and special interests.

I would be interested to hear any reasonable definition of "Middle America" for which this sentence makes sense. Wealth transfer-wise, surely Middle Americans would almost unanimously do better under Democratic policies than they would under Republican policies designed to endlessly shift tax burdens from the rich to the middle class while simultaneously insisting that middle class programs like Social Security and Medicare need to be slashed to the bone in order to avoid future fiscal catastrophe?
