Clueless: John Kerry blames his loss on Osama Bin Laden's releasing a video days before the election. Kerry believes the visual of Bin Laden scared Americans into supporting their commander in chief. I guess that's what "moral values" means today. At least he's not so dense as to blame gay marriage like some of his peers.

The Bin Laden tape didn't scare anyone. I saw a weakened terrorist who was more conciliatory now that his ranks have been decimated. Instead of launching an attack before the election, which many of us expected him to do, he videotaped a monologue. The only indictments he could lay on our nation and its leaders are bits he pulled from a Michael Moore movie (and it's sickening that the filmmaker was proud that Osama Bin Laden was quoting his work). Bin Laden is still a threat, and he will carry out more attacks against us. Our decision to fight back isn't based on fear. It's resolve.

There still seems to be a lot of misunderstandings between the Reds and the Blues. If you haven't seen this, you should read this open letter from a Red State resident to the Democratic Party. There are also two excellent essays, here and here, written by centrists (hat tip, Centerfield) explaining that we're not so different after all.
