    Wisconsinite here. We've been putting up with bullshit passive-aggressive comments from people shaking their heads at us for a good while longer than most states.

    Sorry if your fee-fees were hurt, but hey, it doesn't feel very good when people make rash generalizations, does it? Maybe now people will think twice about making flippant comments about how people in these states just need to "work harder" and get their shit together.

    Banking on the American people to be able to sort all this out and declare the adult in the room the winner is a very big bet. -Digby

      "Y'all can go to hell" because you all keep lumping ME in with everyone else in my State isn't irony what is?

      I don't have to disagree with the diarist that it isn't right to suggest everyone in a group should be punished for the "sins" of some.  Never did like that in elementary school and I don't like that approach now.  But denying that his rant was irony because your feelings have been hurt longer doesn't quite make the grade.  Can this rant not be ironic and still hold some validity?

        The tone of the diary (especially the opening line) is fairly hostile.

        But I will take your irony and raise you all the comments from people who found the diarist to be out of line, now that the shoe is on the other foot.

            Which is kind of ironic!
