|Feeling so blue in the Bluegrass State.|
Here we see Kentucky ranking last or near-last in yet more national rankings.
In terms of overall wellbeing, Kentucky was second-last behind West Virginia and worse than Mississippi. (No comment.)
In terms of emotional health, Kentucky ranked last.
President Obama's home state of Hawaii had the greatest wellbeing for the third year in a row. Maybe that explains why he is so maddeningly well-adjusted and even-tempered all the time? (Reminds me of that Onion story: "Poll: Happy, Healthy Obamas Out Of Touch With Miserable Americans.")
Maybe if Obama were a little grumpier and more miserable then more Americans would like him? They just can't, like, identify.
