Laugh and the Blue States Laugh With You

One of the epistolary genres that e-mail can mimic and parody is the classic "Dear John" letter, although most agree that a text message breakup is still unacceptable from a netiquette standpoint.

Now, a widely circulated e-mail called "Dear Red States" is humorously proposing a breakup between the liberal and the conservative parts of the country by making a number of statistical arguments about the greater economic and cultural value of more progressive political territory.

Of course, given the reach of the e-mail, there had to be a "Dear Blue States" response.

Thanks to Samuel Losh, who keeps me current on Republican digital ephemera, for the e-mail!
