    Are there any that haven't been? Seriously, that's an amazing indictment of Democratic leadership at the local level, and let's remember that the mayor of one of those cities, Oakland, just became the Governor of California for the second time. At least the passengers on the Titanic didn't vote to hit the iceberg.

    For those who don't know Camden, it isn't exactly a big city like Detroit or St. Louis. There's only about 79,000 people living in Camden and it is the biggest shithole I've ever been in. And to think that they thought it was a good idea to put a minor league baseball stadium, aquarium, and an amphitheater there. The only apropos thing they built there was a prison but that closed in 2008. And since this is a PC world, I guess I'm not allowed to bring up the elephant in the room about these cities.

    I used to date a girl whose mom lived in Camden, and we visited a couple of times. She was in the "safe" part (to the extent that there is such a thing) but it was a truly scary-looking pit, and that's compared to Baghdad. I certainly wouldn't go back without body armor and an MRAP.

    Camden was one of the cities I could not find a info on when their last republican Mayor was. I'm betting it's been at least since the 1940s . . . .

    I wouldn't be surprised. What does continue to surprise me (or perhaps "apall" is a better word) is the degree of failure that liberals will ignore, excuse or just plain deny in pursuing the same policies over and over. Each of the cities on the list is a monument to Democratic Party governance, and each of them would qualify for foreign aid as failed states if they were outside of our borders. The only difference between Detroit and Zimbabwe is that Detroit can't print its own currency, and Camden's only advantage over Mogadishu is proximity to Philadelphia, which isn't much better, but at least has great cheesesteaks. How anybody can look at these cities and continue to vote for Democrats is beyond me.

    Can you imagine being a cop in Camden? They couldn't pay me enough.
