15 November 2008

a place for everything or birds of a feather ?

the votes are in revealing a most curious concentration of Palin-pimping, Bible-beating, Dinosaur deniers in where else but... Arkansas? (which makes a certain kind of sense, having an inferiority-complex such a part of the cultural DNA that even it's capitol's name describes it as "little")

on 4 November, just over 1% of the 3100+ county-sized political units in the United States (including LA's 'parishes' and AK's 'boroughs') around 36 of them, registered a 20% or more increase in the number of votes for McCain/Palin in 2008 than was received by Bush/Cheney in 2004.

Half of those 36 were in Arkansas.

Which gives a whole nuther meaning to the name "the natural state". (must be something in the water. chicken feces?)
