In case you didn't notice, New York was one of the blue states... 

Paul Lewis, a prof at Boston College, suggests that the Democratic states secede from the Union and join Canada.

The secession proposal is obviously tongue-in-cheek, but most of the rest of the article seems to be serious.

Okay, so most of the things he says in the article are foolish but harmless. But here's the kicker:

Alluding to the Middle East reminds us of one of the greatest benefits of joining Canada, a nation that has far fewer enemies than the United States. After declaring their affiliation with a country that respects the United Nations Charter, the newly created provinces would be far less likely to draw the wrath of international terrorists.

I can only interpret this to mean that he believes the US had it coming when the events of 9/11 hit.
