An Immodest Proposal: Have the Blue States Over for Dinner
Finally, something we can all agree on: The Christers want us out! Out, you hear me, OUT! Sayeth the believers at Human Events, in an essay entitled, "Declaration of Expulsion: A Modest Proposal: It's Time to Reconfigure the United States":
When they tire of showering conservative victims with ideological mud, liberals promote the only other subjects with which they feel conversationally comfortable: Obscenity and sexual perversion. It's as if the genes of liberals have rendered them immune to all forms of filth. . . If the so-called "Red States" (those that voted for George W. Bush) cannot be respected or at least tolerated by the "Blue States" (those that voted for Al Gore and John Kerry), then the most disparate of them must live apart--not by secession of the former (a majority), but by expulsion of the latter. Here is how to do it.This article, by the way, is the 563rd in the past decade to completely misappropriate and perhaps misinterpret the essay "A Modest Proposal" by Jonathan Swift. Unless the good people at Human Events are saying that this whole expulsion of the coasts thing is the same, on moral grounds, as eating babies. . . Oh, that's sweet. I had no idea they cared.
