What galls the British Left is that they know better. They wallow in their shame.
They can never forgive those who came before for demonstrating that they can do better.
There are bears in the woods. That is known to other bears and to the birds and the bees and the forest ranger. It is not known to the granola munching yuppie but it does not change the fact that there are bears. Put it another way, did anyone you know vote for Richard Nixon? Can Pauline Kael and her twenty best friends decide for the rest of us that there are no bears and that Hitchens only tripped while intoxicated? Once they get to make things up, votes found for Franken or Michelle Obama is beautiful or Bush lied, then every supposed fact is an arbitrary construct. We are in the deconstructionist wilderness ruled by an ignorant and arbitrary aristocracy. This is Hell.
