Schoolhouse Rock

Three - it's a magic number. Schoolhouse Rock, well, rocks, and my attention was drawn to it again today with the introduction of "No More Kings" (which, might I add, I regard as nothing more than blatant and simplistic propaganda). You can find the lyrics for No More Kings here, but there's one verse that stands out in particular:

With no more kings...
{We're gonna elect a president!}
No more kings...
{He's gonna do what the people want!}
No more kings...
{We're gonna run things our way!}
No more kings...
{No one's gonna tell us what to do!}
No more kings!

How's that working out for you across the pond now, huh?

Disclaimer: of course, some of my very best friends have had the fortune to be born in North America.

46 comments and trackbacks

As much as it can be a pain in the ass, I'd rather have somebody we chose by election rather than someone who got born into the job...

Granted, most of the British system is now elected, so really, it can't be all that much worse on this side of the pike..except...Parliament is at least entertaining, whereas C-SPAN could put anyone to sleep.

Well, unless Jim Moran is threatening to punch out his fellow congressman.

*sigh*
