Au Contraire

Hendrik Hertzberg, in this week's New Yorker:

Here in the bluest borough of the bluest city of the bluest state in all our red-white-and-blue American Union, it has not been a happy week.

I know that now is not the time to quibble, but I feel it is my loyal duty to point out the following:

Kerry - 82%
Bush - 17%

Not bad, not bad. But shall we take a gander at our nation's capital?
Washington, DC
Kerry - 90%
Bush - 9%

Now, he may have us on a technicality; DC by definition cannot be the bluest state. And by sheer numbers, well, who can compete? But if we're going to parade the solidarity of our misery, then man, DC has really got the blues.
