forget the state voting. Look at the voting percentages of ski towns! Or ski counties, like Aspen, Jackson, and so forth. Buried in blue amidst the red states. They voted overwhelmingly democrat, and are the epicenter of the "liberal elite" - the latte swilling, fat board skiing, powder hogging rippers who make their homes in idealistic havens and think that they are better than everybody else. Stealing all the sweet pow from the social conservatives, who are forever relegated to the blue squares on their narrow skinny skis.
but for the record i think that this is a ridiculous debate started by a self aggrandizing liberal who 1) thinks that fat skis are cool, 2) associates liberalism and leftism with being cool, and 3) associates conservatism with generally being uncool, 4) probably doesn't have much of a political stance outside of "dude, that was sick" and 5) wants everybody else to know that he's cool.
hehe i'm also just playing around, don't get upset. still this is not an appropriate debate for this forum.
for the record....
...i ski on fat skis
(oh i almost forgot i also have mid-fat skis. does that make me a communist? a libertarian? confused?)
