An interesting observation from Frank J:
It’s a really horrible idea to denounce Middle America in San Francisco, but luckily the reverse isn’t true. McCain could bash San Francisco all he wants while in Pennsylvania, and that certainly wouldn’t hurt his chances in a national election. Pretty much the whole country considers San Francisco to be full of weird, useless people. The city is a punchline. The only ones who don’t consider it full of freaks are those who live there… and even half of them have to suspect something.
This is what passes for “normal” in the Democratic Communist People’s Republic
