23. W.Va. pisses away its legacy

One of the most-repeated political tales here in WVa is the story of JFK's primary win in 1960.

It was conventional wisdom that a Catholic couldn't win a southern state, so Kennedy camped out here, campaigned hard and got to know the voters.

His win here proved the stereotype of W.Va. bigotry wrong, and the state has taken great pride in that for 50 years.

But today's mouth-breathing idiocy 100% destroyed that lesson and re-established this state as a place deserving to be the butt of the nation's jokes.

I can no longer get annoyed when MTV sends a hipster film crew here to make fun of the state with a pseudo-documentary like "The Whites of West Virginia." This place deserves to be mercilessly mocked at every turn.
