in

Madam Secretary hasn’t missed a beat. She knows that the calling card of Democrats in the Obama era is a polarizing politics that seeks to fire up minority voters by stirring fears of fire hoses and police dogs. Its basic vocabulary is imputations of racism; its evidentiary standard is low and dishonest; and its ethic is whatever works — so long as it stirs fear and anger.
The latest target is the state of North Carolina, which is accused of soiling itself with a new voter ID law, among other changes in its election laws. “The Decline of North Carolina,” harrumphs The New York Times. “North Carolina’s Attack on Voting Rights,” says The Daily Beast.
