Ms. Greggs has apparently only lately gotten around to realize that eight months ago, some brilliant satirist out there in Blue America wrote the Red States a "Dear John" letter. While said letter was obviously puerile, it had the following redeeming features:
- Its argument is logically consistent.
- It was well-written.
- It was funny.
This is what gets top billing on DemUnd? I mean, come on. They could have simply recirculated the "Dear Red States" letter with a couple of updates... at least the Letter had real humor and made real points... for instance, a BlueStater might actually want to keep Hollywood, and rather have Harvard than Ol' Miss, thus beautifully highlighting the differences between the rest of the country and Greater New England.
(One of them being the stark difference in your chances of getting a close, personal understanding of the phrase "coyote ugly." Speaks for itself, don't it? )
... I mean, if the country had to split, would it be worth it to lose all those public-service union parasites, if it meant having import duties slapped on good NoCali weed? The Letter raises an important issue!
Ms. Gregg's piece, on the other hand, seems to posit that non-liberals are going to wind up in Bush-istan, a place of ignorance, futitily, and state-sanctioned torture. But at least she does have this self-serving little sugar-plum to dangle over our heads:
Well, it's not too late. As much as some of you drive me crazy at times, you'reTo which the only meaningful rejoinder one could possibly make is the hope that, in the end, Ms. Gregg might get one. And, possibly, a writing tutor.
still my Fellow Citizens, and I want you to be part of my country, and part of
Democratic Underground should be spanked for not only allowing this ... myrmidon to upstage the Letter on its bandwidth, but actually showcasing the pathos for all to see.
