NRO Writers to Leave Country if Obama Wins

Can someone tell me why exactly wingnut Republicans are able to plausibly lay claim to "True Patriotism" when the right-wing nutjobs at the National Review Online are broadcasting that if Obama wins, they will leave the country?

Here's Mark Steyn:

Just for the record, nobody's jumping out of tenth floor windows here. Jonah was down at the sleazy waterfront dive checking whether his fake Paraguayan passport is ready yet, and Jay was at the end of the rotting wharf gazing at the horizon and looking for the guy he gave five grand to for a berth on the last tramp steamer out.

Believe me, I'd be happy to pay for their tickets to permanently relocate to Paraguay. However, if statements like this were ascribed to supporters of Barack Obama, wouldn't the NRO wingnuts be screaming at this as evidence of how much these country-leaving traitors hate America?
