A list of broken vacation plans

VACATION PLANS 2010

I was planning on going back to Arizona to see the Grand Canyon again. But why would I go to a place where the Republican-led legislature just passed a measure verging on creating a police state? (Will they stop a Major League baseball game to check out all of the Hispanic players?)

I was planning on going to Texas to see the Alamo. But why would I go go to a state whose loopy Republican governor thinks it would be heavenly if Texas seceded from the Union?

I was planning to go to the Mardi Gras in Louisiana. but why would I have gone to a state whose Republican governor had been touted as presidential material and fell flat on his ass with a single TV speech?

I was planning on going to Florida in the fall. But why would I go to a state whose Republican governor, once headed for the short list of presidential candidates, is running so far behind a Tea Party supported candidate in the senatorial primary that he may have to change his name and run as an independent?

I was planning on going to Alaska for one of those inland cruises, but why would I go to a state whose former Republican governor wouldn't share her front porch with me to see Russia?

I was planning on going to South Carolina for a week at Myrtle Beach. But why would I go to a state with a Republican senator who wants to set up a theocracy in America? ?

I was planning on going to Virginia Beach. But why would I go to a state whose Republican governor is a homophobe and tends to be forgetful of slavery in his declaration of Confederate History Month?

Folks, Ohio is looking better to me every day for a vacation in my backyard.

Why-O, Why-O
Won't he come to Ohio
And leave San Jose as an also-ran?

Come to Western North Carolina. The Obamas are having a great weekend here, and you can, too.

That is interesting, considering that people are fleeing Ohio in droves to live in southern states such as South Carolina, Virginia, Florida, Texas, etc.

I guess those "right wing, teabaggin' rednecks" down south know what they are doing after all. Ohioans shouldn't be mocking those states, we should be emulating them.
