Foxes in the Henhouse
How the Republicans Stole the South and the Heartland and What the Democrats Must Do to Run 'em OutBook - 2006
A political blueprint for how the Democrats can win again in the South and rural America. The authors document the Republicans' rise in the South and Midwest, expose the hypocrisy that marked their ascent, and offer a take-no-prisoners plan to kick them out. "Rural strategists" Jarding and Saunders are two self-proclaimed "bubbas" on a mission to convince their fellow southerners and rural Americans that the GOP's claim of representing "values," patriotism, and fiscal conservatism is a disastrous farce. In addition to exposing the lies behind the gradual Republican invasion of the hinterland that began in the 1960s, they offer some surprisingly simple strategies for Democrats to capture each of these issues. Among other things, Jarding and Saunders urge Democrats to quit turning their noses up at the culture of rural America and talk to people where they live, and to show some passion and retaliate when Republicans assassinate their characters.--From publisher description.
