Not sure what the criteria was for the pink states, although it looks like recent anti-choice legislation may be one filter. There are many other states which should be on the list, including my neighbor WVA if dumbfuckery is the definition.
Yes... there are MANY wonderful people in all these states. My recent travels through the southeast has reinforced this in my mind without a doubt.
Most of these states also have awful, restrictive state governments. Saying that there are good people in the US, and ignoring all the horrid things that many others do and believe, is TYPICAL Faux News simplification and misdirection. It's not a zero sum argument.
pinotlvr, quick question; is Washington DC pink and therefore the capitol of Dumbfuckistan, or just red... and embarrassing?
