A very good rant


…a number of readers seem to have a problem with this one. All I can say is, “lighten up.” And remember that Swift wasn’t really suggesting that we eat Irish babies, either. Sure, this piece is hyperbolic, but the fundamental point is important: how exactly is it that liberals, especially Northeastern liberals, have come to be defined as somehow less than “real” Americans? I’ve been getting bashed over the head with that crap since 9/11, and I can assure you, it gets old real quick.
