Liberal New Hampshire

Via the John Stark Review, there's an article in the Concord (NH) Monitor that reports New Hampshire rating as "one of the 10 most liberal states in the country."

But if you haven't fainted dead away at the shock of that, you can move on to read the fine print: the measure is based solely on the state's laws on gay rights and abortion. And one of the three groups involved in the ranking is the "SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Health Collective," which I am not making up, so take the whole thing with as big a grain of salt as you'd like.

The groups have a (Linux-hostile) website here where you can find out about their ranking criteria and where other states fall. They're pretty hostile to "Choose Life" license plates, although I don't think that impacts a state's ranking.
