    Bring On Them Bible-thumping, Gun-Toting, Flag-Waving, Ass-Kicking Rednecks.

    What most folks call a Redneck, ain't nothin' but a workin' man, says Charlie Daniels, and if you've ever had the desire to see a member of the liberal intelligentsia turn purple, just lift up his rock and remind the slug beneath that them there working-man types is a solid majority in these parts. It's the inability of the liberal elite to understand this that will be responsible for the up-coming thrashing of the increasingly left-leaning Democratic party in the 2004 elections.

    The liberal politicos are making a serious mistake, you see, in badmouthing Bush and his strong leadership. Us working-man types are finally fed up. The disgust in the American Heartland is almost palpable, and the breaking point is near. After eight years of the unctuous "statesmanship" of the lying, thieving, calculating Clinton gang, Americans en masse are embracing a man after their own hearts - a man who, when faced with a challenge, dares to say "bring it on."

    I can think of some past presidents and military leaders who'd have chuckled at the mildness of that retort. But not our current crop of Democritical rodents - oh, no. John Kerry is as good an example as any of the pantywaist Saddam enablers who would rather see the United States defeated than suffer the indignity of being caught using the salad fork for the shrimp cocktail.

    "Bush's comment," said Senator Kerry, "was unwise, unworthy of the office and his role as commander-in-chief, and unhelpful to American soldiers under fire. The deteriorating situation in Iraq requires less swagger and more thoughtfulness and statesmanship."

    Has any man ever been more wrong - about anything? What the timid Kerry calls "swagger" is the American attitude in motion - the very attitude backed by will-do action that has carried American fighting men to victory for generations, and has, under George W. Bush, prevented another major terrorist attack on American soil.

    While you'd never know it if you get your news from the big papers and networks, the American Redneck is alive and well and still itching for a fight after September 11th. He's waving his flag, thumping his bible and checking his ammo, and God bless 'em, because he and his fellows of the majority are also sneering at the likes of Kerry and his own fellows - the doom-and-gloomers and their anti-American accomplices in the media. The flag-wavers exist still, in vast numbers, and wouldn't understand how it is that "flag-wavers" could possibly be intended as a derogatory label.

    This month's issue of the Tocquevillian Magazine is a Redneck's delight - a veritable hog-fest of all-American neighborhoods, proms, pop-psychology and political incredulity. We're enjoying ourselves immensely, and that is perhaps the most damning testimony of all against the sweat-beaded mewlings of the anti-Bush, anti-America crowd.

    Living well is the best revenge, to coin a phrase, and ain't no one lives better than a Redneck.

    Bring it on, libs.
