  •  That red part comes to the State Fair... (4+ / 0-)

    ...I spent 11 afternoon/evening shifts in the Move to Amend booth at the Oregon State Fair. After a few days I was starting to melt down with worry. The anger, RWing Conspiracy Theories, and Rush's word dumps were ringing in my ears as I tried to go to sleep each night. I worried for PBO's ability to win Oregon. Then it occurred to me that I've lived in Oregon since 1978 and I'd never been to the state fair...different demographic. Listen to Markos and take a deep breath.

      My ex-boyfriend lives in Portland and we went to meet his sister who lives in one of the redder areas.

      He warned me that you don't have to go too far outside of Portland to come in contact with a strong redneck element.

      I found out that he was right but only because on a couple of occasions, that same element came into Portland to do some business or another.

      Different accents, different way of life, the whole nine yards.
