Arrogant Northeast Liberal Elite

Thursday, November 11th, 2004 · No Comments

Mark Morford explains why We Are All Dubya’s Doormat:

The truth will soon be hitting much of the conservative nation like a redneck smacks a dog: now that the fear-saturated Right has handed this failed oilman four more unrestrained years to do his dirtiest deeds and a deeply contaminated, well-greased Congress to do it with, he no longer needs their support and he couldn’t care less about their “moral values” or their positions on Social Security reform or the war in Iraq or just what the hell he meant about spending the “political capital” he claims he’s earned by winning the election (by the slimmest margin of any incumbent president in history).

(Thanks, Glenn, for the Morford heads-up.)

Although this is clearly a broad generalization and not everyone who lives in the south is guilty of these attitudes and values, it’s still pretty fucking funny and poignant:

Fuck the South. Fuck ’em. We should have let them go when they wanted to leave. But no, we had to kill half a million people so they’d stay part of our special Union. Fighting for the right to keep slaves – yeah, those are states we want to keep.
And now what do we get? We’re the fucking Arrogant Northeast Liberal Elite? How about this for arrogant: the South is the Real America? The Authentic America. Really?

Finally, how will Arafat’s death affect the Middle East?
