Schneider: Kentucky vs. Vermont

From CNN Senior Political Analyst Bill Schneider

(CNN) - It's no surprise CNN has called Vermont for Barack Obama and Kentucky for John McCain. A look at the exit polls shows that both men won nearly every demographic across the board. These two states could not be more different!

    Whoa there Sandee. I wouldn't say those things if I were you. Not everyone in the south is uneducated. Most of my friends are college educated and some have their masters including me. One of the greatest presidents Abraham Lincoln was from Kentucky.

    Ive been to Vermont. Looked like a bunch of country bumpkins to me.

    Besides, is the goal in life to be educated or happy?

    No worries – Kentucky always belonged to McCain and was never in play for Obama. Nobody panic – there's more to the US than the east coast remember?

    Grow up people. The media is just a bunch of talkers stating what they think. They don't really know anything. Everyone's precious Obama is NOT being cheated out of votes!

    In 1983 I was stationed at Fort Knox, KY. Living off post I still recall the two rules stated by my landlord upon giving me the keys:
    "No darkies and no loud parties" I had to ask someone what his first rule meant and then I ignored it. It is unfortunate to realize that not much has changed in KY.

    If being president ages you 15 years, what will that do to McCain?

    Anybody that voted for this dried-up old man sure must have his or her head in the sand.

    I wish Vermont was republican like the good old days.

    We should have let the south win the civil war. Then they'd have gone their way – guns, bibles, slaves, ignorance and all. I'm a New Englander at heart, though transplanted to California - and even here in eastern San Diego county I know of at least one cross burning in recent memory. The st00pidity quotient is high, which is good news for McLame and Impalin'

    The funny part is that while VT is a very blue state, it also wants to be very conservitive when it comes to state spending. Our republican gov. who will hopefully be re-elected will continue to see to that.

    it's still early no need to start picketing :) obama got this!

  24. What?!

    Kentucky is home to at least one multi-national Fortune 500 company – so apparently there are educated people there...however, it does stink that they would go for an old geezer and an ignorant beauty queen...being from that state...color matters a lot there. Always has...always will. Sad America is one of the few places where Obama's color is such an issue. Quite honestly, I think the rest of the world is sick of the dummies for presidents...these last 8 years have been awful. America needs a strong leader to be great again – not an antiquated old man.

    Go Barack!! Whatever it takes to send Sarah Palin away. What a vile, hateful woman. If listening to the inspiring words of Obama remnd you of John F Kennedy, Hearing Palin speak reminds you of having to sit through a Nazi rally. What a disgustful person she is.
