The phrase "anti-American" has always seemed sort of ambiguous and prone to being hurled around loosely by anyone seeking to discredit anybody else who doesn't like the things some president or other is doing. But it's hard to think of a more concrete example of anti-Americanism than actually threatening to secede from the United States of America. Which, in these desperate last days of overheated goobernatorial rhetoric, is apparently what Rep. Zach Wamp has just done. Does this mean we'll need passports to get into Virginia or North Carolina? Do we get to design our own currency? Do we have to give back TVA and Oak Ridge?
And does Zach Wamp have to return all of the federal tax dollars that have paid his salary for the last 16 years?
