The United States is in a fifty-states-wide couples' counseling session, thinking about filing for divorce. But is that really what we want? Can a nation composed of states that are so
different possibly hang together?
Colin Quinn, comedian, social commentator, and writer and star of Red State Blue State
, calls us out state-by-state, from Connecticut to Hawaii. He identifies the hypocrisies inherent in what we claim
to believe and what we actually do
. Within a framework of big-picture thinking about systems of government--after all, how would
you put this country together if you started from scratch today?--to dead-on observations about the quirks and vibes of the citizens in each region, Overstated
skewers us all: red, blue, and purple. It's ultimately infused with the same blend of optimism and practicality that sparked the U.S. into being.
