I couldn't have said it better

Dan Savage, writing for The Portland Mercury, hilariously summarizes what liberals should do now that the red states control the federal government. In a nutshell, he argues we should dump all empathy we have for issues affecting the "heartland", eg, healthcare, jobs, etc. Here's a nugget:

"Certain distressed liberals and progressives are talking about fleeing to Canada or, better yet, seceding from the Union. We can't literally secede and, let's admit it, we don't really want to live in Canada. It's too cold up there and in our heart-of-hearts, we hate hockey. We can secede emotionally, however, by turning our backs on the heartland. We can focus on our issues, our urban issues, and promote our shared urban values. The Republicans have the federal government--for now. But we've got Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Diego, New York City (Bloomberg is a Republican in name only), and every college town in the country. We're everywhere any sane person wants to be. Let them have the shitholes, the Oklahomas, Wyomings, and Alabamas. We'll take Manhattan." - Dan Savage

Shitholes indeed. Backward, hypocritical, hatemongering, tax hating, parasitic shitholes.
