We all know the stereotypes of red-staters (Gods, guns, NFL footall, NASCAR) and blue-staters (arugala, soy lattes, atheism). Let’s leave aside all the really negative ones (racists, traitors, etc.) and focus on just the cultural ones.
So, what things are there that should appeal to both types? In particular, I’m looking for things that appeal to some of the stereotypical traits of each, as opposed to something like chocolate or sex, which appeal to everyone just because.
One that occurs to me is Mythbusters. For your blue-staters, you’ve got enormous respect for the scientific method and rationality, plus it’s filmed in godless San Francisco. Plus explosions. For the red-staters, you’ve got guns, guns, fast cars, and Kari Byron firing guns in slow motion. Plus explosions.
