What do Pat Buchanan, Ted Kennedy and Michael Moore have in common?
The Young Curmudgeon cites some examples of “moronic convergence”
The ideas and rhetoric of hard leftists, hard rightists, crackpot Libertarians, Greens, Marxists, and Islamofascists have become so similar that it’s almost impossible to tell whether a given statement was made by a writer in the Arab press, an editorialist at The Nation, Pat Buchanan, or Osama Bin Laden.
“Moronic convergence” is, of course, a new way of saying that politics make strange bedfellows. And what stranger bunch can you get than Michael Moore, Ted Kennedy and Pat Buchanan all agreeing that we need to let Osama bin Laden have his way.
