I don't like to think of people, places, or things as stereotypes. So why is it whenever I read anything about the deep south, it always sounds like L'il Abner to me?

Like today when I read at a Yahoo! news blog that 52 percent of Republican voters in Mississippi believe Obama is a Muslim. Another 36 per cent cain't figger out what the heck he is.

Only 12 percent believe he's Christian, which would be, according to stereotypical expectations, the same percentage who believe Joan of Arc was Noah's wife.
