Like this one for example: Minneapolis-St. Paul Ranked #4th Snobbiest City. If Minnesotans aren't insecure, then why do they act so superior to everyone else, just because Underwater Kite Flying Magazine ranked you number 1?

Pot, meet kettle. Aren't you the same guy who incessantly trolls the Minneapolis–St. Paul forums, just to remind us how "snobby" we are? You are the poster child for insecure.

You are snobby, and you put down every single other state, because apparently some magazine said you're number 1. Minnesotans are insecure because the only thing anyone knows about them is that they're cold. Iowa has the caucuses, Wisconsin has beer, cheese, and the Packers, Michigan has Detroit, what stands out about Minnesota? They are jealous because they feel their city deserves recognition for their above average, but still pretty mediocre, cultural offerings, and good economy, and that translates into passive-aggressive put downs of other places.

Good old Cleverfield, faithful defender of all things anti-Minnesotan.

Seems very telling that while the Minnesotans who have participated in this thread have had nothing but good things to say about Iowa, you have to make this into an irrelevant attack on "Minnesota snobbery".

Are you just pointing at things and calling them "textbook insecurity" now?

I grew up in the Kansas City area (Kansas side) and to me, Iowa was just an equally boring Midwestern state as Kansas. Overall, I had no real opinion of it, negative or positive. It didn't really feel any different from NE Kansas.

When I think of Iowa today, I think of old people sitting in diners talking to politicians.

Iowa is generally considered pretty progressive....Kansas not so much.

Kansas= Brownback, regressive.
Iowa= close to the national average politically, evenly split.

Never really thought about Iowa and I grew up in a bordering state (Missouri). But I grew up 4 and a half hours from the border though so that is probably why.
