New America - it is I

Ok, so there's old Europe and New Europe, according to the God Rumsfeld. But more than that, there's Old America and New America. Gee, I wonder which is more important? Odd thing is, when you say Old America, one thinks of traditional, conservative, Bushist America. But like so many things these days, that's completely, 180 degrees wrong. Old America is the New Yorker, the New Republic, the Atlantic, Harper's, the "blue" states and all the cultural tyrants who attempt to impose Old Europe mores on America. Have we ever allowed Europe to do this to us? Will we ever? One hopes not, no matter how many third-world lackeys line up behind Chirac and Dan Rather.
