Inkwell already has quoted blue state guru and West Wing adviser (the TV show, not the real thing) Lawrence O’Donnell’s semi threat to stamp his feet, hold his breath, and secede from the Union. Leave it to Lucianne to spot the perfect Quote of the Day: 

“You know what? Just let me make one point. You were talking about the map before. If indeed all those blue states all got together and seceded from the union, think what would be left for those red states, nothing. There would be no educational system. You would have nothing. What would be left to you? I mean, where is all of this talent in this country? It’s on both sides, the Northeast corridor.”
-Geraldine Ferraro to Sean Hannity on Hannity and Colmes, November 6.

Gee, it sounds to me as if the wide open spaces may actually be between Ms. Ferraro’s ears.
