Deja Vu all over again

Clinton 1,954, Obama 4,139 all others 128

In 1988 when almost every municipality in Massachusetts went with Mike Dukakis Amherst supported Jesse Jackson; so I guess it should come as no surprise that Obama beats Clinton by a 2-1 margin here in the People’s Republic, while Clinton wins Massachusetts--dubbed by the Republican winner Mitt Romney as “the most liberal state in the nation”. So if that's true, I wonder what that makes Amherst?

The most liberal town in the most liberal state in the country.

I think Mass is the only state Romney and Obama won.
Everywhere else, McCain and Obama won, or Romney and Hillary, or McCain and Hillary.

Psst. I think the people's republic of Cambrudge has a claim to that title too.

Yeah but 2004 with Amherst being the only High School in the nation to allow Vagina Monologues put us over the top for claiming rights to "people's republic" (nixing West Side Story in 1999 put us in a tie and 'VM' was the tiebreaker).

And let's not forget last year's love note to Iran.
