For proof that conservative America. . .

. . .can set aside its prejudices and listen to what cultured, foreign educated opinion makers have to say, here's Mark Steyn -- one of the most popular pundits on the face of the planet among right-leaning political junkies. Now, mind you. . .we don't normally put much stock into the words of anyone who knows as much about theater as Mr. Steyn. But, Steyn's brash level-headedness and willingness to skewer whoever needs a good editorial spitting, regardless of party or position, has put him in good standing in the vast swath of crimson on the electoral map.

". . .nobody who campaigns with Ben Affleck at his side has the right to call anybody an idiot. H. L. Mencken said that no one ever lost money underestimating the intelligence of the American people. Well, George Soros, Barbra Streisand and a lot of their friends just did: The Kerry campaign and its supporters -- MoveOn.org, Rock The Vote, etc. -- were awash in bazillions of dollars, and what have they got to show for it? In this election, the plebs were more mature than the elites: They understood that war is never cost-free and that you don't run away because of a couple of setbacks; they did not accept that one jailhouse scandal should determine America's national security interest; they rejected the childish caricature of their president and paranoid ravings about Halliburton; they declined to have their vote rocked by Bruce Springsteen or any other pop culture poser."

One of these days, I'm going to buy that man his favorite drink (up to $20, with tip).
