When we achieve the "controlled, monolithic society," a certain economist will be counting snowflakes on the North Slope...

Mr Kerry has been complaining (yet again) that Republicans are "attacking his patriotism."

If we were attacking his patriotism, I guess we would say that he hates America. That he hates our freedom and diversity. That he wants turn America into a tyranny.

...But the vitriol also reflects the fact that many of the people at that convention, for all their flag-waving, hate America. They want a controlled, monolithic society; they fear and loathe our nation's freedom, diversity and complexity...

It is because

In Mr Kerry's case

It's actually believable...
