This is more than about shaping the news. It is how the “elite” an “intellectuals” think about the rest of us. The disdain below is for the South, but I am sure we are not alone on their “holier than thou” list.
I think someone should call on Dear Leader and request a REPUDIATION of these remarks made by so many of his supporters, ESPECIALLY in light of how they portray the Tea Party. (pot meet kettle) I bet there is much more hate spread around in the emails not released.

They want a deficit driven militarist/heterosexist/herrenvolk state. Because remember: They also dont want to pay any taxes. Thats the limited government part. But they want their grandparents to have Medicare. Its not exactly a coherent world view.
Ill say it for a second time, then Ill stop: We should split into two. Live and let live. As MacGillis reminded us yesterday, the founders never imagined a country so large anyway.
The only catch I didnt mention the other day is sports, but I think the two nations would simply have to agree by treaty that all sports, pro and college, will just continue as before.
but all the good music came from the South surely, you dont want to leave us with nothing but polka, Gershwin, and A Prairie Home Companion?
Cmon Mikewe now have Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction. Dixie can keep the f***ing museums and tombstones. Weve got the recordings now
But it took a lot of suffering (and interracial sex) to create all that great music
. We Northerners just ripped it off
Ok, we ripped off their music. They repaid us with Jesse Helms, Tom Delay, and George W. Bush, among too many others. How about if we keep the interracial sex and just call it square?
Hey, is the boy from Hibbing chopped liver?
As he wrote in his HS yearbook: I want to be in the band
of Little Richard. Just another Dixie wannabee .and his mentor, Woody G, was from OK
yes, but now there are lots of black people in the north, so we can still have all that great music etc. the south served its cultural purpose and can now be left to go its own way, like they say they want to do. We can check back in fifty years and see whos better off.
I’m fine with splitting into two countries. Let those b@st@rds get the hell out of the way of our prosperity. It’s a deal. Check back in 50 and I’ll bet we’re kickin’ their @sses. I’d love to see the looks on their faces when they run out of OPM and food.
I don’t see any way to mend this cultural divide.
That is some messed up stuff.
