Politics in western North Carolina

Also known as "The Mountains." If this reader's comment to Andrew Sullivan is any indication, a very conservative part of the country is going left. Maybe not hard left, but left. The writer is in high school who says he and all of his friends are registering Democratic. Here's part of his comment:
All we know of the right is the Ultra-reactionary and barbaric performance of President Bush and the Congressional republicans, and, for the most part, all we've seen from the Left is dogged opposition to the right's inane or insane policies. Conservatism as a movement has lost its future, because it has, from what I can see, completely lost the young.

Unless the young become steadily more conservative as they age.

well, perhaps Churchill was right about being young and being old.
