Someone I wish I was related to has posted a statement on The Cronus Connection (no, I've never heard of it but I like it) proposing Americans start our own country composed of only the Blue States, and call it New California (nice). My favorite parts:
- "You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states. We get stem cell research and the best beaches.
- We get Elliot Spitzer. You get Ken Lay.
- We get the Statue of Liberty. You get OpryLand.
- We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom.
- You will have to cope with 88 percent of all obese Americans
- 38 percent of Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale
- 62 percent believe life is sacred unless we're discussing the death penalty or gun laws
- 44 percent say that evolution is only a theory
- 53 percent that Saddam was involved in 9/11
