International Peer Pressure

Charles at LGF had a post yesterday about a website where you can post a picture of yourself apologizing to the world for the re-election of President Bush. I won't waste bandwidth posting any of the pictures, but if you take a look you'll see a couple of recurring themes: people pleasing ("we're not, like, all uncool...please don't hate us"), Zapateresco cowardice ("my city didn't vote for Bush, please don't bomb us!"), and general Moore-ish self-loathing ("dude, sorry we are stupid Christian chimp idiots like our President!")

Demographically the college-aged poseurs and 60s has-been are well represented.
