Gail Collins on Texas and Politics

Email a Friend

Gail Collins talks about American politics and the disproportional influence of Texas, which has become the model for not just the Tea Party but also the Republican Party. In As Texas Goes…How the Lone Star State Hijacked the American Agenda, she looks at the influence of the Texas way of thinking on the 2012 election, and shows how the presidential race devolved into a clash between the so-called “empty places” and the cities.
