when you are telling someone from outside the area, do you tell them you are from virginia? or do you tell them you are from northern VA, or the DC area. feel free to lie, because we know the real answer. I am from NOVA, and EVERYONE there separated themselves from the rest of the state.

yes, the gigantic sprawling subdivision that is NOVA is certainly nicer than monticello or colonial williamsburg. thank you for your valued and accurate input.

My brother and sister in law live in the heart of Appalachia. . . they are voting for Obama. Also, they are small business owners, also, they are smart as heck, work as hard as anybody, are generous, kind, thoughtful and. . . . did I mention smart?

I wonder if this is the kind of denial cr*p we'll be hearing from the republicans for the next 8 years. "President Obama? Oh, he isn't a real president. Who cares if he has power? Who cares if he is really in office, who cares if he's really doing the job."

I hope you join the real world soon. Because living in reality is what's important.

You can believe what you wish. After all, Sarah Palin thinks New Hampshire is called "the great northwest." John McCain thinks the Czech Republic is called "Czechoslavakia." But that doesn't make any of you right.

you might want to ask a republican about that. I am an independent and have never voted for a republican in my life. however, haven't liberals been living in denial because of the 2000 election? 8 years of denial can quickly become delusion. I hope you join the real world soon too. maybe then you will stop claiming to be part of an area you live 50 miles aways from.

Of course someone from Norfolk or Suffolk VA will also tell you that they are from Hampton Roads or simply the Hamptons b/c that's what that part of the state is refered to as. Central VA doesn't have that much of a case b/c the only big and famous city in that part of the state is Charlottesville. That is not the case with NoVa or the Hamptons.
