I am the Cobb County Liberal.

So, I might as well be upfront. I live outside the perimeter. I live in the liberal bastion known as Cobb County, Georgia, known for such luminaries as Newt Gingrich and Bob Barr (who votes in my same precinct, frighteningly enough.) Known for putting those stickers in textbooks that said evolution was a theory, not a fact. Known in the past for the war on gays (Although in cobb’s defense, there is a gay bar now in Cobb County. Saw a drag king show there.)

It can suck sometimes being liberal in Cobb County, surrounded by cars with the W stickers, or with Plain or McCain stickers, overhearing the most disgusting conversations wherever you shop. The paleo-converstives roam the streets looking for liberals, I guess in order to suck out our brains so they can see what one looks like.

But, there are signs of hope in Cobb. First, South Cobb is an entirely different world than my part of Cobb, where they even have Democrats representing them in the GA Assembly. Indeed, there is even Democratic State Senator Doug Stoner in my area (who, granted, might owe part of his election to his last name.) So watch out East Cobb…we’re coming…
