For four years it has been the common line among Europeans that President Bush is an idiot. After his re-election, these critics are shifting their focus to say that all Americans are idiots.

Here is an example from the explanation in Britain's Daily Mirror for President Bush's electoral victory: “The self-righteous, gun-totin’, military-lovin’, sister-marryin’, abortion-hatin’, gay-loathin’, foreigner-despisin’, non-passport-ownin’ rednecks, who believe God gave America the biggest dick in the world so it could urinate on the rest of us and make their land ‘free and strong’.”

From one idiot to many. Is this progress?
