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.
