Michael Moore has posted “A Liberal’s Pledge to Disheartened Conservatives” on his website, which begins:
We will never, ever, call you “unpatriotic” simply because you disagree with us.
Such a pledge would have seemed silly pre-Bush era but it now seems necessary to reclaim what has been lost. Namely, the basic freedom of dissent without condemnation. It is nicely written by Mr. Moore and I heartily endorse it.
