Washington, DC, vs. "Freedom"

In what can only be an ironic note, gleaned from a column found in Taki's Top Drawer:

It is interesting to note, however, that, in my lifetime, the attempts at secession I have seen—the unsuccessful ventures of Biafra , Rhodesia , and Katanga , and the rather more victorious efforts of Croatia, Bosnia, Slovenia, Macedonia, and Slovakia—were all opposed to varying degrees by Washington—a town that can’t seem to stand seeing small regions escape the grip of a central government.

It does make GWB seem a bit counter-cultural.

Whig-power, anyone?
