It'll be a few days before we get to find out the worst state in America as determined by Gawker, but it feels like Arizona probably has it in the bag, right? After all, we "won" the last of these when GQ arbitrarily ranked the 50 states, and if they're going to give New York the title of Best State Ever because they have gay marriage, a global cultural center, and the Catskills, I'm sure it'll be all Brewer, Arpaio, and the usual suspects.

Life is good in Arizona. I'll always love it here no matter what any zine says. Global cultural center and the Catskills? Who gives a sh@t?

It's a gossip blog. Who cares? It's obviously driven by political drivel too. All the liberal havens are amazing places to be according to the ranking.

Tell it to the thousands of people that move here every year. Maybe we will get some peace. lol Doesn't seem like anyone else shares their opinion. We have one of the largest cities in America here for some reason. But, we don't exactly need the promotion so might as well give it to some other state. All the people flooding our state annually already know were great.

New York is number one? Almost every poll and survey I have seen, using different criteria, has New York at the bottom of the heap, usually contending for the bottom rung with California, New Jersey, or Illinois.

All of these best states, worse states, best states to retire in, etc... are all crap as far as I can see. The best place for anyone is where they feel they belong--and that can be anywheres dependent on many factors.
