If today’s elections turn out to be the “bloodbath” liberals fear, you’ll certainly hear the typical “I’m moving to Canada” lament, predicts Richard Lawson. But if Dems get trounced by the likes of Sharron Angle, "it might mean that things really are pretty hopeless here,” he writes on Gawker. He lists five places the depressed can seek refuge:

  1. Toronto: “Canada is reasonably liberal, has universal health care and gay marriage, and is clean and safe-ish” … then again, it is also “super duper cold.”

  1. Buenos Aires: “The steak is delicious, the wine flows like water, and the people are mostly gorgeous.” But, um, “the Argentinian economy is sort of in the shitter.”
  2. Paris: It's a breathtaking city teeming was top-notch food, culture, and "unbearably good-looking people.” Of course, the con is that “the people are unbearably good-looking. One gets a complex.”
