Southern Idiots?

A quote from this NYT piece:

Along the Atlantic Coast, parts of the “suburban South,” notably Virginia and North Carolina, made history last week in breaking from their Confederate past and supporting Mr. Obama. Those states have experienced an influx of better educated and more prosperous voters in recent years, pointing them in a different political direction than states farther west, like Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi, and Appalachian sections of Kentucky and Tennessee.


...Many of those counties, rural and isolated, have been less exposed to the diversity, educational achievement and economic progress experienced by more prosperous areas.
That's right, you didn't vote for Obama because you are all a bunch of backwoods rednecks who cling to your guns and religion.

Eh, expect more of this browbeating till Texas goes blue.
