To: caveat emptor

It anguishes me to even glancingly defend Andrea M., but I believe she was merely explaining why the population of Iowa, demographically and culturally speaking, should not be taken as representative of the population of America, taken as a whole. She was not opining that she would prefer Iowa to be less white, less Christian, or less rural, or that Iowa ought to be chastized or dissed for being what it is.
Incidentally, I like Iowa as she is. But, then, my Minnesota cousins say that the best thing to come out of Iowa is I-35, and next Michelle Bachman.

If you read the article you'll find that notion to be thoroughly debunked, with linked documentation, except for the"white" part.

From the article:
So in truth, Iowa isn’t all that freakishly small, evangelical, or rural. Which leaves us with “too white.”
