I posted to a friend's comment thread the other day that I am growing weary of this whole notion that somehow, Real America is the middle of the rural "God's country" and that the cities and coasts are just havens for political correctness and libtardery run amok.

This piece by The Rude Pundit lays out how I feel almost perfectly:

What you're calling "elitism" is just simply not being ignorant. We don't have our heads shoved up Jesus's ass. And when the left gets angry because of how fucking dumb some of the shit coming out of rural and red mouths is, we're told we need to understand what they believe.

and,

The whole thrust of these "let's learn about the yokels" articles is to imply that there are real Americans and there are coastal elites. Sorry, motherfuckers. We're all Americans.

The whole article is excellent.
