the updated lyrics, 2004 edition

I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free... to wear sunscreen

On the other hand, Ohio could still turn our way on provisional ballots. It's a long shot, but so is coming back from 0-3.

At least I can sleep reasonably well knowing I helped PA go blue, and knowing that MN went blue without my help. Also, it looks like Andy might be winning... with just Wabasha County reporting in. That would be ... well, something of a consolation prize, I guess.

Beh. Don't want four more years.

Gotta figure out how to work within the "new" system to make things happen. Can't just leave the country, it's still better than all the alternative systems. I just hope we can keep the part of the government that says "we protect minorities from the majority." It's starting to look like that may not be what we get.

Hold on, Rehnquist... four more years...

You really think so? The American constitution is Democracy's alpha test. Others have looked to it for inspiration, certainly, but I know of none that decided to adopt all of its features. Quite a few of them seem to be doing a better job of protecting their citizens' civil liberties these days than ours. I know of no other where the content of school curriculum is subject to politics
