Are there any counties or towns that tend to vote for the loser more often than a county that always votes for the same party every time?

Regarding the last four presidential elections, I would guess that any county that voted for both Kerry in 2004 and McCain in 2008 is pretty anti-bellwether, as Obama won basically all his 2012 counties in 2008 and Bush won basically all his 2000 counties in 2004.

Tennessee seems to have the most examples.
