A local California slang term for the area of Kern County, Calif.. It is used mostly by younger people who are annoyed or irritated at the right-wing, rednecked ways of the county. It is the most red county in California. Leading many to compare it to the backwater areas of Kentucky, thus turning out Kerntucky.
Welcome to Kerntucky, home of the narrow-minded, gay hating, gun toting Republicans of California.
