One of the good things about living in the United States is that, for the time being, at least, most of its citizens

are free to say what they want. For instance, if someone wants to criticize the president (whether he was actually elected or not is beside the point), he doesn’t have to ask anyone’s permission, he can just stand up and say, “Hello, I think the president is an idiot.” Of course, no good American would do this, because good Americans - as we are frequently told by a free and independent corporate-owned press completely untainted by special interests - all think the president is wonderful. That’s why I was so mad the other day when I saw a bumper sticker that said “Re-elect Gore in 2004.” In fact, if I wasn’t so busy thinking up the following headlines,
