Jonah Goldberg listens to National Public Radio so we don't have to. And what did he hear today? This bit of "reporting:"

Just now on NPR's Morning Edition (yes, I often listen), a story on yesterday's failed vote on Debo Adegbile began "a handful of southern Democrats joined Republicans yesterday to defeat President Obama's choice to head the Justice Department's civil rights division."

One supposes these Senators are descibed as "southern" as a means of explaining their apparent bigotry in opposing an Obama nominee. Here's a list of the Democratic no votes:

Chris Coons (Delaware)
Bob Casey (Pennsylvania)
Mark Pryor (Arkansas)
Heidi Heitkamp (North Dakota)
Joe Manchin (West Virginia)
Joe Donnelly (Indiana)
John Walsh (Montana)

As Goldberg says, "Not exactly sons of the Confederacy."
