And I mean that in the nicest possible way.

Such brillinantly blind socio-political analysis deserves a thorough response, preferable on a bumper sticker:
"I Suck and I Vote!"

Um, Matt's right. I'm *not* very progressive.
Lately, all I see from progressives is a desire to take my money and give it to their favored classes.
Which, oddly enough, include plenty of progressive white men with pretty good jobs when you look at bailout nation.

Interesting that one of the baby blue states was Oregon.
The legislature just enacted "Green Initiatives" that will rip off the taxpayers for more than 40 times the cost that the governor claimed would be *max* amount. And *gave* tax credits to "green" companies that were worth *more* than they could be sold for to "non-green" outfits -- two particularly "shining" examples:
1. SolarWorld, of Hillsboro, sold an $11 million tax credit to Wal-Mart for $7.37 million.
2. SolarWorld also sold a $10.96 million tax credit to Flir Systems, of Portland, for $7.34 million.
Schadenfreude, baby, schadenfreude.

Mr. DeBille -
Those companies operate in, essentially, the only majorly liberal swath of land within the state of Oregon. Go outside the Willamette Valley between Eugene and Portland and you will find a completely different political bent. (btw - the state capital is located pretty much equi-distant from the other two cities.) Outside of that rectangular section of the state, you will find plenty of people asking, "WTF!?" Unfortunately, a significant enough portion of the state's population resides within that particular section of the state to make a difference.
Sucks, but that is the reality of the thing.

Yes, I do suck: +!++!Σ$ and beer. ;-)
But regardless of that, I "didn’t buy the 'vote for charismatic inexperience, half-baked socialism and virulently anti-American foreign policy or you’re a racist' line", no...

...a significant enough portion of the state's population resides within that particular section of the state to make a difference.
Same with Joisey -- the voters in the Dem enclaves in Hudson and Union counties (including all the dead voters), and in the city of Camden, outnumber the remainder of the population, which is of the same political bent as most of Texas.
To add insult to injury, those counties are where the majority of the social parasites reside, too...

So, Bill, how do you think the Joisey vote will go today??
Posted by: olga at November 3, 2009 04:37 PM
Badly, if they let Dems who have been dead for *longer* than ten years vote, too...
Posted by: BillT at November 3, 2009 11:34 PM
Bill, I guess, they did not let "those" Dems vote after all :o) Good for Joisey!
