"On MSNBC this morning, McCain adviser Nancy Pfotenhauer asserted that "real
Virginia" does not include Northern Virginia:

I certainly agree that Northern Virginia has gone more Democratic. … But the rest of the state — real Virginia if you will — I think will be very responsive to Senator McCain's message.

MSNBC host Kevin Corke gave Pfotenhauer a chance to revise her answer, telling her: "Nancy, I'm going to give you a chance to climb back off that ledge — Did you say 'real Virginia'?"

But Pfotenhauer didn't budge, and instead dug a deeper hole. "Real Virginia, I take to be, this part of the state that's more Southern in nature, if you will."

Thorpe ended the segment noting that Pfotenhauer was appearing via satellite from Northern Virginia.

"Nancy Pfotenhauer, senior policy adviser for the McCain campaign, joining us from Arlington, not really Virginia."

"Alright, I'm just gonna let ya– you'll wear that one," Corke responded. "

Ok, so if you live in Virginia and you support Obama what does that make you? Massachussetan? (I apologize for the botching of that word).
