Life in "Progress" City - Detroit edition

Just how "progressive" is Detroit? Often, I make fun of how hard it is to find a republican in some of our most "progressive" cities. In Detroit, it's no joke.

theblogprof has the results of the most recent elections in Detroit.

2008 General Election results-DEM: 96.93% GOP: 2.65%
2006 General Election results-DEM: 95.05% GOP: 4.33%
2004 General Election results-DEM: 93.61% GOP: 5.93%

So if you are a native Detroiter, when the hell do you start blaming the condition of your city on your democratic officials? Based on the above figures, I'm guessing never.
