What’s foreign in America, using the the Cokie Roberts test?

Tropical beaches and palm trees: Hawai’i, California (say it like Ah-nuld), and Florida?

Frenchies: Louisiana and Vermont?

The northern Mexico desert: Texas, New Mexico, Arizona?

(Let’s eliminate New Mexico just ’cause of the name.  Most people think you need a passport to go there, anyway.)

Too close to India: Indiana?

Foreign-born governors: Michigan, California (second strike)?
