You say you want to try that Reconstruction shit again, buddy? Get stuffed.

I don't have a lot of respect for Salon to start with (about the only cool thing they do is publish Camille Paglia's infrequent columns) but man, this is a new low in stupidity: Michael Lind proposes to end what he terms "the South's economic war on the North". How sixty years of welfare-state liberalism, union fuckwittery, and the worst examples of corporate bureaucratism run amok is the South's fault Lind never really gets around to explaining, but he's sure that we're in it up to our necks with the evil, fascist Nips, Krauts, and their Korean sidekicks*. Jonah Goldberg has a brief and fairly temperate response, whereas Velociman treats Lind's thesis with the complete lack of respect it deserves. Let's face it, some notions are so goddamn stupid they deserve to be relentlessly mocked and trashed, and the notion that the South is somehow not as American as the imploding kleptocracies of Michigan and the Northeastern states is right up there in the Top Five. I'm not too keen on the Jefferson Davis quote, but damn, it sure does fit. (Instapundit and Ace)

*Don't even get me started on the comments. OMFG, these people are retarded.
