Who has done this thing?

Republicans and Democrats re-elected Bush. Not just cross-over Democrats, but Democrats who championed Bush and made him more or less their own. Bush Democrats are a different bunch from the Boll Weevil Democrats who backed Reagan. Unlike the Boll Weevils, the Bush Democrats include a lot of liberals, even leftists. 9/11 was their epiphany.

This is the new alliance, which I hope will begin to transcend the tired old partisan games of Cowboys and Indians. It's founded on the recognition that, from right to left, we are the beneficiaries of a civilization that is worth saving. And we will save it.

Michael Moore, your fifteen minutes are up.

Osama bin Laden, look on us and despair.
