As one who has lived in both Eastern and Western Washington
, I can say I much prefer the western half (much, much better Thai
food). While the western half of Washington
, forward-thinking people to congress
, the eastern half seems bent on returning the United States to the 19th century
. Eastern Washington was so determined to send a republican
, they even decided to unseat
the Speaker of the House
in favor of a freshman republican
For a number of years many Washingtonians have wanted to combine North Idaho, Eastern Washington, and Western Montana into a new state called Columbia. However, no one really wants to be associated with the North Idaho's white supremacists, so don't start planning a 51 star flag anytime soon. Plus, it's a hassle to get a new driver's license when you move to Seattle after graduation.
On the bright side, Eastern Washington doesn't have all that many Starbucks, thank god. Or earthquakes...
