Steve Bartin blogged Markos Moulitsas Zúniga the man that runs the most successful [left wing] political blog in America can't afford the Blue state of California:
So I'm getting a little frustrated with the Bay Area real estate market, and for the first time in years I'm casting about the rest of the nation to see if there's anywhere else where I could possibly live.How ironic, a guy who supports a party that promotes Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and-use restrictions, zoning, open space laws, and unions is unable to buy a house in the very Blue area of Northern California.
Just because liberals want to impose things like that on others, does not mean they want to suffer under them themselves.All this from a guy who's got a law degree. What is it about Blue America that hates people that aren't rich??? Attention Markos Moulitsas Zúniga: did it ever occur to many in Blue state America that Houston (that doesn't have zoning) is a lot more affordable than let's say Berkeley, California.
Don't send him to Texas, that is supposed to be a secret known only to conservatives.Also, Houston residents don't have a state income tax that they are paying. It appears Kos can't afford the very values he promotes, which is regulation of markets which leads to artificially high real estate prices.
