Braving the 'Red Sea'

I wonder how the folks in the so-called blue states would react if a conservative writer published a story about the blue states with the same tone as David von Drehle's piece about his travels through Bush country? It has a touch of the patronizing tone of a " travel to a strange place with the quaint natives " travelogue that were around over a century ago, or the the tone of a badly-written National Geographic article about a newly-discovered lost tribe. Do you think the writer would use the same tone for a piece about the part of the country that produced the people who in turn produced this stupid web site?

Somehow I doubt it.
