The Other Kim spun a FINE 'yarn':
++Political commentary/thought of the day.....
++What color is YOUR state, and can you figure out WHY???
++MY state is considered RED, yet I know more people (7 out of each 10) (!!!!)
who vote Dem.....
++I don't GET it!
+I'm in California. About as blue as they come. Of course, if you break it
down further you find that there's a blue coastline and mostly red the rest of
the state. Then again, since most of the population lives on that blue
coastline area it's no surprise. The bigger cities tend to be more "liberal",
the rural areas more "conservative", and the state is actually very centrist and
has a good amount of common sense on most issues.
+I'm in OC, however, and it doesn't get much redder than this. Then again, we
do have one Democratic Representative, Loretta Sanchez (who managed to bump off
Bob Dornan years ago), and I am hearing a lot of grumbling about the economy and
Iraq and the high cost of health care and... OC still isn't likely to go blue
any time soon, but it won't be nearly as red this time around as it has been.
+The Other Kim
Hi, Kim! Long time no *see*
! Waving from Tennessee!
We have a Dem gov, except I think he's conservative as all get out. (reminds
me of the exact opposite of long ago Pres Ike, who ran as a Rep, but was
liberal/moderate/Dem at heart!
We got quite a few Rep. state senators and representatives after the Waltz
Across TN debacle that caught some of our incumbant Dem's with their hands in
the cookie jar.
Strangely, tho, over 73% of the people I've talked to, people I know, etc vote
The registrar in our county told me that 90% of her new registrants this year
listed themselves as DEMOCRAT, so perhaps we'll be a blue state once more....
hurts you so bad that you feel you have to hurt me in order to heal it?" >fave quote of the month....
