I really get a kick out of the responses from people who seem to think that dissing Texas scores a point or two on me.
Yes, I live here and am happy to do so (especially if the Obama Re-Election Apocolypse materializes), but I wasn't born here, and have only lived here for 8 years. No native Texan would ever consider me one of them.
Liberals see Texas as a land of ignorant, barely sane extremists. It's the sort of prejudiced generalization they would condemn under most other curcumstances, but hey, since they are righteousness personified, it must be OK.
Most Texans don't care what Liberals think about them (Except of course the few self-loathing Liberal Texans) and in fact take their disdain as a badge of honor. Texans have nothing even approaching an inferiority complex.
This isn't the land of milk and honey but it's a damned sight better place to live than most of the "Blue States."
So dig away. I'm not a Texan and so don't care and if I was a Texan I wouldn't care.
