I think that this map, courtesy of the folks at PleatedJeans.com, is meant to be humorous. Unfortunately, there is very little humor contained therein.
Okay, so Ohio is the "nerdiest state", Washington has a "bestiality" problem and North Dakota is the "ugliest" state**.
But, take a look at states like Delaware (highest abortion rate), Michigan (highest unemployment rate) or Texas (lowest high school graduation rate) and you see some truly disappointing/disturbing statistics.

This space is designed for thoughtful commentary on politics and media (and whatever else comes to mind). The Pajama Pundit welcomes people from all political stripes to voice opinions freely and without fear of mean-spirited attacks. He does however expect intelligent discussion -- and some understanding of proper grammar usage.
For a more detailed look at commenting, please review our Comment Policy.
Please refrain from personal attacks on authors or other users. Back up your argument with documentation (links to elsewhere on the web). This is a big sandbox -- so please play nicely with one another.
NOTE: For all of the HTML nerds out there (like me), anchor, strong (bold), em (italic) and blockquote tags work within the comment form.
