Lileks may be a conservative bastard, but he does have a way with words.

It is unfair of him to complain that Franken doesn't live in Minnesota, though; that one Franken himself pointed out as one major reason for not running.  "If I'm going to run for Senate, you'll see me moving to Minnesota first." 

But anyway.  Funny.  Reasonably neutral, politically.  And Minnesotatacular.

Does Boston really drain the joy out of people's lives?

And East Coast go-to-hell attitude? Is he maybe thinking too much of NYC and Boston and forgetting that there's also, say, the non-liberal South on the East Coast too? I've heard people from the Carolinas say that northerners are unfriendly, but I never imagined that, say, Minnesotans thought that Carolinians had a go-to-hell attitude.

Maybe my view of America has been skewed. When people talk about "the heartland" and cultural dichotomy in the US, I think on my memories of the Carolinas/The South(east). But I guess the Southeast is even too hoity-toity for people farther inland?!
