GOP States Are The Most Dependent On Government


What may come as some surprise is where these two warring tribes tend to live. The states with elected officials most likely to espouse anti-taker sentiments -- i.e., Republican-dominated states -- are the most dependent on federal spending, while returning the least to Washington in the way of tax dollars.

sharpe and benning have not asked any hb faithful to come on their show (that we know of).

if they did, who would we send?

i will take nominations for an arbitrary and capricious amount of time and then form a poll.

then, if this thread is not taken over by internet funny guys, we can discuss the results.


to get things started, i would nominate ADS (he's a smart guy) or shawnwatson (he's class incarnate).

who you got?
