USATODAY - Michael Moore

USATODAY.com - The GOP doesn't reflect America Courtesy of NRO: Posted 8/30/2004 9:25 PM Updated 8/31/2004 11:06 PM The GOP doesn't reflect America Michael Moore, Filmmaker NEW YORK — Welcome, Republicans. You're proud Americans who love your country. In your own way, you want to make this country a better place. Whatever our differences, you should be commended for that. But what's all this talk about New York being enemy territory? Nothing could be further from the truth. We New Yorkers love Republicans. We have a Republican mayor and governor, a death penalty and two nuclear plants within 30 miles of the city. (Related stories: Moore index page) New York is home to Fox News Channel. The top right-wing talk shows emanate from here — Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O'Reilly among them. The Wall Street Journal is based here, which means your favorite street is here. Not to mention more Fortune 500 executives than anywhere else. You may think you're surrounded by a bunch of latte-drinking effete liberals, but the truth is, you're right where you belong, smack in the seat of corporate America and conservative media. Let me also say I admire your resolve. You're true believers. Even though only a third of the country defines itself as "Republican," you control the White House, Congress, Supreme Court and most state governments. You're in charge because you never back down. Your people are up before dawn figuring out which minority group shouldn't be allowed to marry today. Our side is full of wimps who'd rather compromise than fight. Not you guys. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Michael Moore makes our case. I'll bet Kerry is cringing over that last paragraph. He goes on to unwittingly demolish the typical stereotypes about Republicans.
