This stuff just slays me....

From the the London Observer, some nuanced Europeans display that subtle and empathic understanding of primitive foreign lands they are famed for...

The US has hardened into two virulently opposed ideological and cultural camps that are almost equal in numbers. On the two seaboards, around the Great Lakes, in the north east and some cities of the south, the Democrats have their base: mildly progressive, multilateralist, tolerant and fair-minded. In the south, the Rocky Mountains and the plains lie the Republican base: religious fundamentalists, fervent believers in America's unilateralist destiny and culturally conservative.
As reeled the mind. I've heard of "Manifest Destiny," but "Unilateralist Destiny?" Whoa! Cool.

This slop fills my head with notions. Can't you just see those beatific sandal-wearing bi-coastal Democrats oozing mildness from every pore? And tolerance too, don't forget that. And just visualize their fair-mindedness radiating like a sweet-smelling benediction over the Great Lakes (and some cities in the South.)

And the Republican base? Count me in. Manifest Destiny was just a warm-up; now it's no more Mr Nice-Guy! Hose 'em down. Let's kill us some injuns! Preferably mildly progressive, multilateralist, tolerant and fair-minded ones. With sandals. Get ready boys, to crush the inferior races and take their women and their petroleum and convert them to Christianity...
