Book Review May 3, 2003
Michael Collins-Moore
By John Dolan Browse author Email
Page 3 of 3
We are a contemptible people. And that's what Moore, poor heroic loyal bastard, won't get. He really is some sort of fool patriot. He can't do what any vain intellectual would do: shake the dust of America from his sandals and become a bitter expat. He really thinks that he can give the corpse of the Republic CPR.

That's really the only weakness of the book. Every section begins with magnificent denunciations and ends with pitiful Civics-class first-aid lessons. It hurts to see him proposing hopeless save-a-tree remedies after he's demonstrated very clearly that we are owned, gag and gaggage, by a handful of pigs. After showing that the Florida debacle was nothing less than a coup, he ends with a section called "How to Stage the Countercoup." It starts with this suggestion: "Contact your representatives on a weekly basis...." Oh, come on! Contact them with a manila envelope full of twenties and they might listen; contact them with Biblical gibberish and they'll at least pretend; but contact them with mere argument? My representative in the House is one Bill Baker, (R-CA), a born-again Republican geek who won on an anti-abortion platform. I'm supposed to believe he'll listen if I tell him to leave the Arctic Wildlife Refuge alone? Like most of my friends, I can't even stomach living in the US any more -- is he going to listen to an email from Moscow? He probably thinks Russia's still Commie. My people have left, or are trying to find a way to leave. Face it: Bush IS America.

The parallel Eileen drew between Moore and Collins is all too close. Collins loved Ireland, but Ireland wasn't worth his love. Moore loves America...well, I just hope we don't kill him. But if we do, you can be sure that every Leftist in the country will go out of his or her way to write a thoroughly "balanced" obituary.
