Dear Red States

Ok, y’all, this has been around, but a list serv member reminded me of it this morning and it made me laugh (again).  Full disclosure:  half my family are Southern Baptists, my cousin works at Clemson (bless his heart), I live in Alabama, and I’m not sure that having Hollywood is anything to boast about.  Having said all that, here ya go:

Dear Red States:

If you manage to steal this election too we’ve decided we’re leaving. We intend to form our own country, and we’re taking the other Blue States with us. In case you aren’t aware, that includes ..California, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois and all the Northeast. We believe this split will be beneficial to the nation, and especially to the people of the new country.

To sum up briefly:

You get Texas, Oklahoma and all the slave states.

We get stem cell research and the best beaches.

We get: the Statue of Liberty. You get Dollywood.

We get Intel and Microsoft. You get WorldCom. We get Harvard. You get Ole’ Miss.

We get 85% of America’s venture capital and entrepreneurs. You get Alabama.
We get two-thirds of the tax revenue, you get to make the red states pay their fair share.

Since our aggregate divorce rate is 22% lower than the Christian Coalition’s, we get a bunch of happy families. You get a bunch of single moms.

Please be aware that we will be pro-choice and anti-war, and we’re going to want all our citizens back from Iraq at once. If you need people to fight, ask your evangelicals. They have kids they’re apparently willing to send to their deaths for no purpose, and they don’t care if you don’t show pictures of their children’s caskets coming home. We do wish you success in Iraq , and hope that the WMDs turn up, but we’re not willing to spend our resources in Bush’s Quagmire.

With the Blue States in hand, we will have firm control of 80% of the country’s fresh water, more than 90% of the pineapple and lettuce, 92% of the nation’s fresh fruit, 95% of America’s quality wines, 90% of all cheese, 90% of the high tech industry, 95% of the corn and soybeans (thanks Iowa!), most of the U.S. low-sulfur coal, all living redwoods, sequoias and condors, all the Ivy and Seven Sister schools plus Stanford, Cal Tech and MIT.

With the Red States, on the other hand, you will have to cope with 88% of all obese Americans (and their projected health care costs), 92% of all U.S. mosquitoes, nearly 100% of the tornadoes, 90% of the hurricanes, 99% of all Southern Baptists, virtually 100% of all televangelists, Rush Limbaugh, Bob Jones University, Clemson and the University of Georgia.

We get Hollywood and Yosemite, thank you.

Additionally, 38% of those in the Red states believe Jonah was actually swallowed by a whale, 62% believe life is sacred unless we’re discussing the war, the death penalty or gun laws, 44% say that evolution is only a theory, 53% that Saddam was involved in 9/11 and 61% of you crazy bastards believe you are people with higher morals then we lefties.

Finally, we’re taking the good pot, too.

You can have that dirt weed they grow in Mexico

Peace out,

–Blue States

    If Obama loses, it’s his own fault. The Bush administration handed this election to the Democrats on a plate. And, I never figured out why Hilary was abandoned as a candidate because I think she would have won. But, as a democrat, I can’t vote for Obama. Why? Because of Rev. Wright, William Ayers (btw the Brinks robbery was in 1981 when Obama was at Columbia), anti-semitism, $1.65 million house from Rezko, Frank Marshall Davis, Farracan, Michelle Obama’s “proud to be an american” statement; partial birth abortion (I’m pro-choice, but that shocked me), support for Obinga in Kenya; refusal to salute flag (it only caught my attention because of Ayers group – consistent w/ the Weatherman philosophy; anti-white statements in his book; use of drugs in college, in short, a mosaic of facts (not fiction) that lead me to not vote for him. Although, believe me, I wanted to….

    Oh, anonymous, spare me the “as a democrat” cover. No “pro-choice” democrat talks about “partial birth” abortion and no liberal ever decries “anti-white statements.” I’ll stop there because we’re too close to the election for me to be completely rational in the face of republican trolling. I’m so tired of this ….
