I think lots of real Teaparty 'marekins should take this opportunity. At the last Sekrit Marxist Muslin meeting we decided to impose sharia law and open the FEMA re-education camps in December so you have one month to patriotically escape.

I'm not sure if they pick the winners from the pool of the losing candidate, but it's more of a safe bet to vote for Romney in this poll rather than Obama. So based on current polling, I think we can probably safely say that about 60% of the country is stupid. This is an upwards revision from about 45% of the country.

I lived and worked outside of the states for 5 years or so. Best thing I've ever done in my life.

Biatching and sniping aside, it's a pretty good promotion on JetBlue's part.

Of course people won't see that, they'll either bash JetBlue(Never had a problem with time personally), accuse them of being fascist Right Wing or Pansy Left Wing supporters, or accuse them of being unAmerican. IN reality, they've taken a running narrative in America and figured out how to have some fun with it and turn it into a marketing campaign.
