Had no idea America is "she". By the way what's wrong with to be unrecognizable? Just pull down your panties on the street and everyone will notice you.

The fact that it refers to Microsoft and Apple as "lefties" tells you all you need to know.
A Lefty is someone who isn't moving right, as in doing something shady or in a way to make you suspicious of them.

That may be your definition but it isn't one that communicates what most people mean. Plus Right and Left are abstract concepts at best and rarely apply across the board to actual people. Most people are "to the Right" on some issues and "to the Left" on others. The extremes on both sides tend to be strident, 2 dimensional loonies.
