Yeah, Portland is pretty liberal but hell, so is Juneau. I don't know why that kind of stuff bothers many people though, because you can live anywhere and find like minded people to associate with if you dislike the others.
Most cities are "liberal." Most suburbs and rural areas aren't. People dis California but I've met some awesome folks there and you can be there for an extended time and never feel "liberal" influence.
