On Conan O'Brien when he makes fun of the state quarters, one he did for Nebraska was "Nebraska: Home of people about to leave Nebrasa". I thought it was pretty funny.

Not the whole red state/blue state thing again...

People are moving to these other states because of low taxes, and low cost of living. Not necessarily for any sole ideological reason.

Not to mention great weather, plentiful land, fast job growth, etc.

on the subject of the voting... Florida might become blue, due to more people moving to Miami metro than Northern Florida...

Ohio could be split 50/50

Huh? Isn't northern Florida much more conservative than southern Florida? Didn't you simply mean to say from the north?

Are you serious? Phoenix will simply continue to spawl as far as it can before it hits more mountains.

Nope, unfortunately Florida is becoming even more red, it was at issue on a news program the other day.

And before this last election Georgia had always been a Blue state, so that list would technically be wrong since it said 95-00.

Jimmy Carter's Georgia voted for him both times he ran--that's why the state's voting record isn't as "red" as you'd expect.

^ Si, I am surprised. Since when was Virginia a hot destination? I suppose all these gulf hurricanes has got everyone headed for northern Atlantic waters...
Knock on wood, the next hurricane will ravage the atlantic coast.
Like hurricane Bertha all over again. :O
