And no, I'm not talking about the fact that everyone there is fat. It's the politics.
A Republican is hard to find there and yet, when it comes to state and local politics, it is arguably the most conservative state in the nation. Thus:
WV Democratic Governor Not Backing Obama
[WV Senator Joe] Manchin: I may not vote for Obama in November
Dem Sen. Rockefeller On Obama: "He's Beginning To Be Not Believable To Me"
All Democrats. All opposed to Obama. All guaranteed jobs for life. In a state that votes increasingly Republican in national elections.
Figure that one out.
