Man Bites Dog

Michael Medved's latest article is addressed to conservatives who are up in arms about a potential North American Union. Long story short, he doesn't think there's much to worry about.
All patriotic people would- and should -oppose any attempt to merge the U.S. with Mexico and Canada, and to terminate our national sovereignty. My scorn wasn't aimed at opposition to such plans, but rather focused on those shameless scare-mongers who've tried to advance their own pathetic careers by getting you to believe that such plots even exist.

Doesn't it tell you something that every time anyone in the administration or Congress is asked about the notion of a "North American Union" he denounces and rejects and ridicules the idea?

. . . If you can find one official in any federal department, or one prominent politician of either party, who has ever, in any way, promoted submerging our national sovereignty into a new nation of North America, would you please give me the name?
As it turns out, a number of readers at Townhall don't agree with Mr. Medved, and they expressed their opinions, like Sam here, in tasteful and reasonable ways.
You scum, Michael. How dare you write garbage. Don't you talk about the war or the war on terror. It a war to get us in the North American Union.

You little 5 foot midget. The American people will squash and destroy people like you. No symapthy here.
"Little five foot midget" brought to you by the department of redundancy department. And, of course, five feet would actually make Medved quite tall for a midget. But what do I know.

I pretty much agree with Michael Medved that combining with Mexico and Canada is unlikely to happen, incidentally.
