Real Americans?

Once again, the National Review proves their status as anti-American by trotting out the same old BS about "real Americans" occupying the Red States. So, why are we in Afghanistan if the terrorists from there didn't really attack America on 9/11? The only terrorist attack in a red state was done by someone from another red state who had red state sympathies.

Paul Waldman has a tremendous
takedown over at The Gadflyer.

To restate what has been shown in other places (for an example,
at Drum) with proof (those in the reality-based community understand what I mean), "real America" takes more money from the federal government than it gives, has higher out of wedlock and teen pregnancy rates, higher rates of violent crime, higher abortion rates, and lower high school graduation rates.
