Better than your state. Sure, the roads suck, but not as bad as parts of Kentucky. Sure, the people can be dumb, but not as dumb as in Alabama. Sure, the weather sucks, but not as badly as it does in Alaska. Yeah, okay, it's a little rural, and you have to buy your liquor in state stores, and there's no beaches, but at least we're not West Virginia. Or Iowa.

Plus, the Amish are cool, we make ketchup and chocolate, the Steelers used to be a decent team, and hey! we've got a town called Intercourse.
Pennsylvania has Intercourse. Your state doesn't.

May 12 Word of the Day
When someone goes to the gym and spends 90% of the time on their phones scrolling through social media
Looks like its thumb day again for Jimmy with his usual routing... 3 sets of 5 snapchat selfies and 10 sets of scrolling through facebook until exhaustion

The only place in the U.S. in which no matter how small a town is, there will always be at least two bars, even if there is not one other business.
No matter where you are in Pennsylvania, you can at least get a drink, even if you can't buy gas or groceries.

A state that takes 5 hours to drive across if there's no construction, which means that it never takes less than 10 hours to drive through. Contains towns with names such as Paint, Tree, Elm, Intercourse, and Frackville. The scenery is quite nice, but very repetitive.
One time, google maps re-routed me off of Pennsylvania highway 81 because of construction. I wound up lost at a mountaintop mall in a town called Frackville.

Literally meaning "Penn's Woods" but better defined by Democratic political strategist James Carville as "Philadelphia in the east, Pittsburgh in the west and Alabama in the middle!" Middle of the state jokingly referred to as "Pennsyltucky". Home of perpetual road construction and an important swing state in national politics. Powerball lottery state. Actually kinda nice.
If you want to win the White House, you must make a strong effort to win Pennsylvania.

I've lived near the Philadelphia area most of my life. I also spent about 6 weeks in northwest Texas, 8 months in Tampa Bay, and the last 5 months in Central Virginia. Compared to all of those, Pennsylvania is awesome. The big city was an hour away, the mountains were about 2 hours from where I lived, and the beach was close enough that we could make a day of it. Philadelphia may be part of a megalopolis, but you don't have to go very far before you're in the country. You get to experience the best of both worlds when you live in PA. Yes, we have attitude, but it's not like we'll never talk to outsiders. We just don't talk to them if they tell us we're all assholes when the farthest north they've ever even been is DC, which isn't even part of the North. We're actually some of the nicest people in the country, we just like to drive fast.
That place is really diverse. It's a Pennsylvania.
