  •  Yeah, (none)
    I remember reading some articles about the demographic over-simplification inherent in the red/blue state stuff. And,of course, if you think about logically how could not be. Sure, Ohio is red by 10,000 votes (or whatever tiny number it was)just like Texas which is overwhelmingly conservativethe. Of course not! I was just trying to make the point about the deep and powerful division that exists in the US between...well..pro-Bush and anti-Bush forces.
    I should have put the phrase in quotes or something to show it's use as a sort of handy metaphorical device.
        The rural/urban divide is fascinating from the view of an expat living over here,as I mentioned in another comment somewhere or other.
    It seems to be just the contrary in Italy. The right hasn't been able to brainwash (since we're
    in this thread concerning the cultish behavior
    of the neocons that seems an appropriate term)
    the rural, less-well-off voters of Italy; or, in any case, manipulate them into voting against their own interests as they have done so well in the US. I don't know, but I think part of it has to do with the still very powerful unions and other socialdemocratic institutions over here, but
    a lot of it just seems to be cultural... Puzzling...
        thanks for responding
