Reader: The more liberal a place, the more awesome it is

Our post about the prospect of Denver hosting the 2016 Republican National Convention (the city is still in the running) included comments from the RNC Facebook page, including one that dubbed the Colorado capital a "liberal shithole." That phrase inspired interesting takes from lots of readers, including this one.

No such thing as a "liberal shithole." The more liberal a place is, the more awesome it is (and vice versa). I mean, where would you rather be: Vermont, or Mississippi?
