      Bush actually won most of the states in a huge red
      swath of "middle America," but come on now, we're not
      so politically correct these days that anyone actually
      thinks I slighted 55 million Americans? That wasn't
      the point. Besides, I don't live in the city anyway, I
      live in a crumbling factory with moss on the concrete
      walls. I even let the feral cats and lizards hangout
      to keep the mouse and bug population down (photo
      attached). Kind of like my mid-western high school.
      But although they did mostly vote for Kerry, please
      don't insult the entire state of Michigan, as they're
      a bit sensitive and are still reeling from the loss to
      Ohio State yesterday.
