THEY'D RATHER HAVE THEIR HEADS SAWED OFF

David Warren has an excellent post today about this evening's debate.

Money quote about liberal Dems:

In the slightly retouched words of my chief Texas correspondent, who was not being entirely facetious, "There are too many Democrats on the left who would rather have their heads sawed off by a Jihadi than admit they've been wrong about everything." And my own sense is that more than a third of the U.S. electorate would vote Kerry against Bush, even if, during the debates, Mr. Kerry's eyes light up green and his head starts rotating. This, alas, has become the "Democrat base".

And he ends with:

The reader would be right to read into this grand seismic events. The U.S. public is splitting along religious lines, not between one confession and another, but more vastly between the religious faithful, and the rest. Messrs. Bush and Kerry have, largely without intending, become surrogates in a battle between alternative Americas, and for each side, in the coming election, almost everything is at stake.

True.
