    I might reserve "snotty" for discussion with friends, in general, but it is an accurate reflection of some of the treatment I have received, to be honest.

    I think that's important, regardless of the words used. Nobody wants to be treated like a bumpkin idiot. It is not charming and it does not win anybody over.

    If we focused on the actual issues facing a lot of rural people, many of which are economic, we'd find a lot of ground we could gain. Instead, we play right back into the culture war.

    And yes, it comes off snotty.
