Latte Liberals and Cruller Conservatives

The classic accusations go: The Political Left are all a bunch of latte-drinking, metrosexual, anti-establishment hippies; while the Political Right are are a pack of double-double swilling heartless billionaires living in trailer parks festooned with velvet Jesii and twelve kids.

In at least one aspect, these images are untrue: the ridings with more of the elitist Starbucks coffee shops tended to vote Conservative, where the Tim Horton's-dominant regions went to the Liberals.

So says CanWest, and I'm sticking to it.
