In response to Robert J. Proctor's stereotyping, groupthink based-attempt to vilify the Chieftain's reporting and, indeed, all of Wallowa County for being out of step with "Oregon," not to mention even the whole "Country," in voting in the majority against Mr. Obama (Letters, Nov. 20), it would suffice to merely point out that 48 percent of the electorate at large also did not vote for Mr. Obama.

Yes, it would suffice. But I can't help noting that Bush Derangement Syndrome conjoined with Utopian Delusionalism just does not seem to represent a very healthy way to approach the problems we face as a nation.
