Finding common ground between San Francisco and Dallas

I’m a bit surprised we haven’t heard as much about the San Francisco-Dallas culture clash leading up to the World Series. I mean, really, what is a sporting event without people reducing two large, diverse, mutli-cultural metropolitan areas to their most crude and basic stereotypes?  I want to hear more about how this is a battle between gun-toting, meat-eating, God-fearing Texas wackos on the one side and drug-abusing, tofu-loving commie perverts on the other.

Joe Eskenazi of SF Weekly has a guest post in the the Dallas Morning News today, and when I saw it I figured we’d be getting some good red culture war meat.  Sadly he’s pretty even handed about it and is in on the joke.  But he does rattle off my favorite line of day so far:

Though I haven’t visited Dallas, I have been to Houston. And I think residents of San Francisco and Dallas can certainly bond – over making fun of Houston.

Someone start throwing bombs, will ya? There isn’t nearly enough outrage floating around this World Series yet, and it’s making me kind of antsy.

UPDATE: I spoke too soon. Leave it to the New York Times.

    Pelosi looks like she’s really sticking it to Dubya in that picture.
