"Interesting" Web Site

It's called "F*** the South." No link provided.

I just skimmed it long enough to catch this little gem:

"And who has the highest murder rates in the nation? It ain't us up here in the North, a**holes."

Let me tell you a little bit about Louisiana. We're a southern state, so I guess that would bring us within the ambit of your thoughtful essay. And one of our cities has the highest per capita murder rate in America. That city was New Orleans. Outside of New Orleans, of course, the murder rate is much lower.

Ponder that for a moment.

John Kerry won Orleans Parish by a huge margin. An absolutely obscene margin. And Bush won the rest of the state by almost double what the predictors were predicting. In other words, while it is true that Louisiana has it's fair share of murderers, they all seem to be voting Democrat.
