This may be the most pathetic editorial wheeze I have seen post-election (via e-mailer Dave):
It’s near midnight Tuesday as I write this, and Dubya is in the fast lane back to the White House. I wish I could say I’m surprised or disappointed in my country. The truth is that I’m neither. The U.S. electorate performed as I knew it would, despite my protestations of hope and glimmers of optimism. I’m resigned — not to the idea of a neocon nation but to the fact that I will always feel alienated from the country I live in but can no longer consider my home. Home? That’s where you feel welcome. I don’t feel welcome in the United States right now. Home? That’s where you feel safe. I’ve never felt more threatened.
We are officially a minority, folks. We’ve always known that San Francisco was an oasis. Now we’re forced to acknowledge that it’s a ghetto, too. Look at the electoral map. We’re like a coastal preserve filled with threatened species: feminists, queers, liberals, leftists, pacifists, intellectuals, environmentalists, libertarians, people who drive hybrids.
That threatened group of Prius owners. The author also directs us to this hysterical website- Marry an American. Enjoy.
