No, not at all a coincidence. The numbers prove it: anywhere Repubs run things, life sucks for 99% of the people. And it’s hard numbers here, Gentle Reader, not “feelings”:

In order to review well-being at the regional level, the OECD used only objective data in its report, rather than existing survey data. Brezzi noted that current international studies that ask people for their opinion on important measures of well-being often do not have enough data to be broken down by region.

For example, one of the nine measures, health, is based on the mortality rate and life expectancy in each region, rather than on asking people if they feel well. Similarly, another determinant of well-being, safety, is measured by the homicide rate rather than personal responses as to whether people feel safe where they live.

The┬áresults show: the redder the state, the more religious cray-cray they have in government, the more Repubs in power…well then, the more loudly that state will suck. Case closed. Repub policies are a recipe for failure.

Don’t vote for Repubs. Vote AGAINST Repubs. Unless, of course, you LIKE poverty, dead kids, s***y streets and crap in every aspect of your life. Because it has been proven that Repubs will give you just that.

Honorable mention to the few remaining Putinistas among us, of course, but Right Wingnuts win this competition going away. Behold this survey of same from their favorite “news” source, World Net Daily:

Yes, you saw that correctly. A Chicago lawyer is supposedly more evil than men whose governments literally slaughtered millions of innocents. You can read the screed here if you have the stomach for it. Truly magnificent stupidity on display, both by the “writer” and the World Nut Daily readers who responded to the survey.

If you think that giving people a break on their doctor bills is worse than murdering six million people, then you, Sir, are dumber than a box of rocks; nay, half a box. And if you think that the failure to nuke Iran (or anywhere else) is more evil than killing millions of other people, then you, Madam, are dumber than a single rock. No, make that a single pebble.
