Rall's Rage Against Red State Biscuits

One of the stranger things in Ted Rall's zing at Middle America is his claim that liberals eat better. Rall's reasoning is that liberals migrate to larger cities, and such cities generally have good food. It's no doubt true that large cities have a wide variety of good food, but that's hardly due to liberalism. Large cities attract immigrants, and immigrants establish lots of good places to eat. Ironically, these immigrants often hold the values that Rall so despises--some of them might even be, gasp, Bush voters.

Besides, large cities don't have a monopoly on good food. I just had dinner with a nice couple from Georgia, and we had beer can chicken, biscuits, grits, and pecan pie. That's good eats.
