South by Southwest: As Others See Us

"As others see us we do not look too good. People in other nations do not look to the United States for leadership as they once did. We are seen as occupiers in Iraq. Nor do we look very good to ourselves. There is a great disconnect between those who govern and the governed. There is little common ground between members of both political parties. Mistrust is widespread. And the 2008 election will soon be upon us. OCP will be in office 494 more days"

Fascists, Nazis, and Klansmen the world over look up to us and admire out monkey.

Let me be real specific about that, lest anyone has any doubt. I mean "values" types, who usually fit all three of the above categories.
