Subject: A letter to the editor re. “A Gore Coup d'Etat?” - a WSJ Editorial (Nov. 10, 2000)
In your Nov. 10 REVIEW & OUTLOOK piece, headlined "A Gore Coup d'Etat?," the Journal editors write:
A COUP DE GORE
A Gore coup d'etat? (Review & Outlook, Nov. 10). No. It would be a coup de Gore. For there is no state (etat) which such people want -- only power.
Which is merely a state of mind. Some French kings thought otherwise ("L’état, c’est moi!" -- Louis XIV; 1638-1715), until their descendants were separated from their heads while believing in their omnipotence.
As John F. Kennedy put it, "if you make peaceful change impossible... you make violent revolution inevitable." Why are the Democrats no longer quoting Kennedy? Because they see too much blood and Gore in his statement?
