    You see in order to get reelected, he has to be an asshole.

    This is a problem when you have majority-idiot districts, or places where the average person is no more than three degrees of separation from every other person in the county.  He's got to pander to voters who have often had carnal relations with sheep.

    This is common for a lot of Blue-dog democrats who may seem more red than blue, but the reality is they appreciate who is in their districts, and they feel its either this or come next election, some Bachmann clone will win election.

        There are parts of Ulster, Sullivan, Greene, and Delaware which are straight out of the bible belt, or the deep south.  (And Bucks is worse.)  The UP has been getting a bit more radical in recent years, you'd think proximity to Canada would make them more moderate?

        Some older areas (demographically old) are more resistant to progressive causes.

          Catskill means Mountains and Park in my case.
