So what exactly does that prove, that people in red states are more charitable and thus better people somehow? Is charity a competition?

Isn't Michelle Malkin just the kinder, gentler Ann Coulter?

If the original list was a "hoax", what makes us so sure that this isn't?

I think the last time we concluded that a little thing called guilt was involved.

Wasn't meant as an insult; just a bad joke.

There is the basic philosophical difference that has existed for decades. Do you give directly to charity, or do you rely on the government to tax you for charity?

or, do you feel that individual charity is never enough, and that only government has the organizational capacity to tackle systemic issues rooted deep in history?

i think it's possible to do both, and that some issues are better address via individuals and other issues are best addressed via government programs.

I don't remember anyone asking me who I gave to or who I voted for when compiling such a list...

^ take a look at the poster, and take a look at the writer's screamfest of a blog (Michelle Malkin is easily the 2nd most shrill woman on the Right, after Ms. Coulter), and i think we can take this thread with a wink and a nod.
