Look what the bozo who chose Sarah Palin for his VP said about us.

From Newsday Mobile for all to read (but please excuse the fact that they have an idiot posting the stories who doesn't understand encoding):

Sen. John McCain took a poke at Long Island on the Senate floor Wednesday, saying it was “sometimes regrettably” part of the United States.
What did WE ever do to McCain?

From what I can tell it's not a big deal, just a snarky quip that fell flat. Dumb, but not malicious.

Ann Coulter calls McCain a “dickweed”.

According to Coulter, "(He's a) grandstanding narcissist who insults conservatives in order to be called 'brave' by the mainstream media.”

You disagree with his dim view of Long Island?

So does that mean McCain is a RINO?

Sorry to say but John McCain is right. If you ever lived in another part of the country you'd understand.

LI has just become an unattractive place. I'm not saying it's armpit of America, but there are many other better regions of the country to live in these days. I am originally from LI and I always will have a soft sport for it, but I cannot live there anymore since living upstate and out west. LI is overpopulated, overpriced, no space, flat, has sky high taxes because of poor tax infrastructure, has horrible traffic. It seems all anyone does there is eat deli food while they gossip and brag about themselves. Most parks don't allow dogs and people have no sense of outdoor recreational activity. Want to go hiking in the morning? Oh wait, they're no mountains on LI. Lets go to the beach? But you'll be stuck in 45 minute traffic, have to fight for a parking space, and end up having your towel two inches away from someone. How about biking? With the exception of Long Beach boardwalk and maybe a few others, there are no nice outdoor biking trails on LI. Most of Nassau County consists of these "turnpike towns" that are denser than osmium, filled with ugly strip malls and levitt homes that are usually right off Jericho or Hempstead Turnpike. North Shore is more spacious and prettier but only millionaires can afford to live there. Suffolk is a little better but it can take more than an hour to get off the island depending where you live. Now there is an SAT scandal, I guess because since people are living on top of each other they feel the need to unnecessarily compete against each other at everything. So they pay other people to take the SAT for their children for them.
Anybody I know who isn't from LI and has visited there does not like it at all and I don't blame them. The overcrowding and overpopulation has led to a poor quality of life on LI and most young people are leaving. The only good thing about LI is pizza and bagels. Places like Denver, San Diego, Tampa, Orlando, DC, and Seattle are way better regions to live in.

Yes. Is there anything worse we can call him?
