    is directly attributable to all the "uniting" that George Bush has done over the past 7 years.

    When you deliberately divide in the way Bush has done, all sorts of splinter groups emerge from the fracture.  Think of it as open season on reason and humanity.  All it takes is somebody to give voice to the prejudices held by enough least-common-denominator Americans, and wrap it in enough sensible ideas, and suddenly you've got a "movement."

    This is one of the reasons why Obama's message resonates.  You get enough people behind a common goal and suddenly the Paulites and their ilk evaporate.
