Daily Dose of Perspicuously Pithy Pundits

Believe it or not, it wasn't just rednecks who voted for Bush, By Mark Steyn:
Forty five per cent of Hispanics voted for the President, as did 25 per cent of Jews, and 23 per cent of gays. And this coalition of common-or-garden rednecks, Hispanic rednecks, sinister Zionist rednecks, and lesbian rednecks who enjoy hitting on their gay-loathin' sisters expanded its share of the vote across the entire country - not just in the Bush states but in the Kerry states, too.

Condescending Dems still don't get it, By Mark Steyn:
...a placard prominently displayed by a fetching young lad at the post-election anti-Bush rally in San Francisco cut to the chase: "F--- MIDDLE AMERICA."

Almost right, man. It would be more accurate to say that "MIDDLE AMERICA" has "F---ed" you, and it will continue to do so every two years as long as Democrats insist that anyone who disagrees with them is, ipso facto, a simpleton -- or "Neanderthal," as Teresa Heinz Kerry described those unimpressed by her husband's foreign policy. In my time, I've known dukes, marquesses, earls, viscounts and other members of Britain's House of Lords and none of them had the contempt for the masses one routinely hears from America's coastal elites. And, in fairness to those ermined aristocrats, they could afford Dem-style contempt: A seat in the House of Lords is for life; a Senate seat in South Dakota isn't.

Note to Europe: Bush's Win Was No Fluke , By James K. Glassman:
The best advice I can give Europeans is: Live with it! President Bush is no fluke, and there's no wishing him away. The good news is that Mr. Bush isn't devious or unpredictable. He's entirely open and obvious. A major theme of his campaign was that he does what he says.

Restart the Reagan Revolution, by Michael Reagan:
George Bush has won the election--for the next four years he doesn't have to worry about being re-elected. It's now time to start limiting government. It's time to get back to fiscal responsibility and to do all the things Republicans are supposed to do: work for less government, fewer taxes, and implementing the ownership society. President has four years to streamline this country and make it run like a smooth engine.

American Exceptionalism, The message of Tuesday's verdict, by Victor Davis Hanson:
Two multimillionaire lawyers from the East Coast were not populists in the manner of a Richard Gephardt, and it was the epitome of arrogance to pretend that they were. Now is not the time for the Democrats to harp about "a divided county," but to ensure that next time Hollywood,, rock stars, and billionaire currency speculators do not headline their campaign, though venom and money they may bring. Perhaps someone in the Democratic party will tally up a Dukakis, Gore, and Kerry and conclude that there is a pattern here that leads to political suicide. And perhaps the world will conclude that America, thank God, still stands firm against the utopian socialism of the U.N., Europe, and its own privileged sophisticates.
