"Sometimes you have to subtract to add, and once you get down to the real warriors, you can fight," said Joe Turnham, chairman of the Alabama Democratic Party. He said he has made dozens of phone calls in recent weeks to surviving Democrats to make sure they weren't considering leaving.
Joe, so course, is not expected to continue as one of those warriors...he's going to be replaced as Chair of the party. And just who is he talking about anyway?
Perhaps another departing "real warrior"...Primary candidate for Governor Artur Davis had the right idea when he suggested what's really needed is a third party. Of was that because he no longer has a home in either major party after blasting both of them in the bruising and losing campaign?
