Nascarization: Fact or Fiction

An interesting NYT piece discussing red states, blue states, Nascar, newscasters, and blogging.

It seems like, post-election, there's a driving need to decide if America is a red-state trapped in a blue-state's media market, a blue-state bullied by red Fox News, or one big puddle of foreign-ire-attracting purple.

This piece's message isn't wholly clear to me. But I can't help but wonder if this "Nascarization" fear is a bit overblow - just more evidence of the fabled American power of overreation. Which is it? In what direction are we going? If we're going anywhere at all?
