Having successfully led opposition in the Pennsylvania legislature to efforts to ban the sale of French wine in Pennsylvania, and then having successfully defended my actions on the O’Reilly Factor on May 8, 2003, (”You might have convinced me,” O’Reilly told me)I am glad to see the anti-French hysteria has waned and the France bashers have generally gone on to other things. I am one of many Americans who will be working to cure whatever ill effects of French bashing remain for many year to come. Our common history has produced too much good for it to be destroyed for narrow partisan political reasons.
