COLUMBIA - A blog told us Wednesday the Palmetto State is the most patriotic in the Union.

And South Carolinians loved it.

Post and Courier reporter Dave Munday noted the Movoto Real Estate blog figured July Fourth "was the perfect time to look at which states fly their banners highest and sport the red, white, and blue the best."

It told us to hold our heads high. No worries Movoto Real Estate blog, we will. We will.
