Gustavo Arellano's take on the current state of the California county that was once described by Ronald Reagan as the place where "all the good Republicans go to die", and that recently passed away from a severe case of election-day "Blue Flu".

Link to Article: An obituary for Old Orange County, dead at age 128.

Orange County is survived by Scottsdale, Ariz., Plano, Texas, and other once-sleepy burbs that now host former residents who still want to live in a booboisie bubble. In lieu of flowers, please send condolences to the Republican Party of Orange County — because it’s likely next.

Seems like you have to be mega-rich to retire there.
