Kerry's Southern Exposure

All the recent happy talk about Kerry's improving poll numbers in the South (for example, over the weekend, the DNC announced that Virginia is now considered "in play") has not swayed us from our perception that the South is officially a Republican sump, and this morning John Wagner, the News & Observer's man in Washington, has an interesting article about Kerry's problem winning ANY Southern state.

They assured us that Kerry would do so much better with Southern voters than Howard Dean, another blunt New Englander to be sure but a man with a perceptible soul (and Southerners generally honor perceptible soul).

Guess we'll have to rely on the PR possibilities of something Southerners also REALLY appreciate, the enormous penis that Kerry is rumored to possess (what? you don't read Wonkette?).
