West Virginia Is a Strange Place

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.
