34. Sorry, IMO that's a straw man argument
There are plenty of religious liberals. Maybe not in the same way (probably not too many observant Jews in West Virginia, for example), but religion is not the sole province of the right, Christ is not a Republican, and faith can lead you to progress as well as to reaction.

Sure, the Republicans use the language of evangelical Christianity to their advantage, but the people in West Virginia are not stupid (perhaps misinformed, considering the quote in the article I posted about the guy who seemed to think Bush was a genuine cowboy). Again, I do not want this thread to degenerate into sneering at those who don't vote our way. I want to truly understand how the Democrats lost what should be a true-blue state, and what we can do to win it back.

Please, folks, stay on message. Thanks.
