A stunningly simple and beautifully done blog post from a womans blog No Upside .
She simpy went to Google and typed in “why is (xxx state) so. And let the autocomplete do the rest.
She then took up to the top 4 results for each state (interestingly several states had fewer then 4 results).
Many of the top results will be unsurprising- several of the southern states had “racist” or “gun crazy” in their top 4 results, while the left coast and NE often had “liberal” (or “Boring” or “expensive”) in their results.
She has a beautiful set of maps on her blog. Check them out here. Then go to Google and do your own tests of your home, favorite, or least favorite states.
I went and checked political parties:
why are republicans so: stupid, ignorant, elephants , against unions
why are democrats so: donkeys, stupid, hateful, blue
why are tea partiers so: stupid, racist, crazy, retarded
