View Poll Results: What best describes the association you make with MA?
Boston and Worcester and everything in between. I think of MA's distinguished New England suburbs and polished urban areas. 6 30.00%
Cape Cod: I immediately picture the miles and miles of unspoiled Cape Cod beaches 5 25.00%
Farm towns, rolling hills, and areas of wide-open rural scenery 3 15.00%
I think MA is a somewhat awkward blend of urban and rural life 6 30.00%
Voters: 20. You may not vote on this poll

Many hardline conservatives (certainly no better than militant liberals) have always been good at scapegoating, namecalling, and smacktalking. It's their strategy for distracting and distorting since they can't come up with any of their own bright ideas. I find it ironic that somebody who makes such a generalized and inflamatory post thinks they can live in an unshattered glass house and call out a whole state as being the douchey ones.

Here's a shocker: Those of us who define ourselves as Liberal do not see the word "Liberal" as an insult. Liberalism is a good thing. We care about our fellow man and consider things like healthcare a basic right, not some kind of rich person's privilege. We feel that gay people having to put up with the insult of Civil Unions instead of Marriage is the same thing as saying "separate but not equal."

If someone calls me a liberal, I say Thank You!

I didn't vote, since I couldn't choose the first 3 together. The last choice is especially annoying. Why would anyone think a state with urban and rural areas (as many do) be an "awkward" blend. Those are my favorite kinds of states. I love NY, CA, MA, PA MD, IL, OH, WI, MO, WA for that very reason! In each you can find true urban areas plus remote, unspoiled towns nestled among beautiful rural landscapes (and a comparative minimum of suburban sprawl!)

Far left liberals, the Irish, Brazilians, and very cold winters.
