Indeed. I think it helps our democracy... part of that "respecting but resisting authority" and such. Kind of reminds me of the story I read on FR this week about the Japanese horse that has never one a race (in over 100 tries) becoming the national obsession currently. Very strange reaction as a people, there, too.

No stranger than William Hung releasing a CD.

Very insight post!

I saw that story about the horse in Japan. You're right, it looked like the entire country was actively rooting for that horse!
