    All states have a percentage of Dems and a percentage of Repubs, they just vary in quantity.

    Even as a light-hearted joke, I am getting so sick of this crap. I live in Nebraska which is currently R+a lot, but a lot of us here are doing good work. Nebraska is a lot more populist than you would think. There are Teabaggers in every state.

    Our system of winner takes all leads to this kind of thinking, but it's really stupid.

    I love it that Obama's channeling Harry Truman: "I don't give 'em hell; I just tell the truth and they think it's hell!"

      Electing people who don't believe in government to Congress, is like installing an atheist as pastor of a church. If they don't believe in the institution or its goals, they won't care if it does a good job for its members.

      then Obama wouldn't be our POTUS. Read up on the electoral shenanigans the repubs are considering for battle ground states that voted for Obama in 2012.
