Slate: The unteachable ingorance of the red states

Wow! I bet this one rubbed the Republicans the wrong way in a big way. Some of these points are valid, harsh, but valid. I really think that the republicans are winning more b/c of thier idealogolical front that they put on so well as of late. When you can make people think that God would vouch for your party, you've done something big. I don't know if it is due to the ingorance of rural folk, I think it is more that the Republicans have made it their mantle and put up a good face to seperate the two parties even more. They clearly know their constituents and molded their identity to cater to them. That is just superior "strategery". Seriously, democrats should really start looking at their own performances, stances, and identity to broaden their appeal to the masses before stereotyping rural folk as being ignorant. Not a good way to pick up the pieces and move on. The Democratic party needs a breathe of fresh air, and they might want to look to Obama. He did something special in Illinios......
