This is a Google cache of the official State Dept website page. Either these Washington, DC people really believe that anywhere between L.A. and the east coast is a different country, (i.e. flyover country) or they are woefully undereducated (and that makes me wonder what intelligence and education qualifications are needed to be at the State Dept…).
Make no mistake, I wonder sometimes about those Texans…They do seem to be a bit different than ordianry “Red State” Americans, but I do still consider the State of Texas as a part of this great union. (at lest for now).
Or, whoever did the web page might have seen it as a joke.
No matter how you spin it, however, “We are not amused”.
ETA: They fixed it.
