Where am I?

A quick Monday morning post before I knock out the crossword.
If one thing's been clear from the news this weekend, it's that America is no longer America.

It might be the Washington Post's assertion that Barack Obama's dream for America is to turn us into Canada.
It might be White Sox and Cubs fans unifying to kick the crap out of an annoying fan at the Cell yesterday, in a scene oddly reminiscent of a stadium full of British soccer hooligans:

Or, to examine the question "What country am I in, again?" in another sense, Bush and Cheney apparently plan on continuing to shred the Constitution right up until noon on January 20th.
From the article:

President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney have rejected findings from U.S. intelligence agencies that Iran has halted a clandestine effort to build a nuclear bomb and "do not want to leave Iran in place with a nuclear program," Hersh said.

So it looks like the boys want to take us into WMD Part 2: No, Seriously This Time! I'm utterly terrified of the leadership in this country, and am without a doubt looking forward to a change.
Apparently I'm not the only one: the "Days Until Bush Leaves Office" blog posts every day with only a sentence. Today's post: "As of today, it is only 204 days until Bush leaves office."
In fact, I'm going to add a countdown, courtesy of the folks over at Backwards Bush - that'll be on the right side of the blog.

Okay. What else what else what else? There's a jackhammer going off across the street (started at 7:30 this morning - aren't there laws about this?) so I'm finding it more difficult than usual to focus, and the noise is making me a little nauseous. Until next time....
