Real America voted for Kerry

Chris at Crooked Timber reminds us all of a few facts. The America that really did come up with the things that made the world a better, freeer place voted overwhelmingly for Kerry:

— The thirteen original states that brought us the Constitution voted overwhelmingly for John Kerry. — The states that didn’t secede and which fought against slavery voted overwhelmingly for John Kerry. — Black America which brought us in Martin Luther King, one of the greatest moral exemplars of modern times, as well as the blues, jazz and soul voted overwhelmingly for John Kerry. — California, home of the modern motion picture industry, voted for Kerry.

These are the great American achievements: the United States’ lasting contribution to freedom, culture and progress. Sadly, that America, the America of which Americans have the most reason to be proud and foreigners have the most reason to admire, just lost. Again.
