This is soooo rich: Americans — our neighbors and coworkers — are decrying the possible election fraud* in Iran and supporting the people who take to the streets against it ("it is _your_ country"). The Mainstream is in an uproar, blogs are buzzing, papers rustling.
Amid this, I find myself asking, "Where were these defenders of Democracy™ as we were getting our asses beat down in 2001 and 2004 protesting the TWO (2) stolen elections here at home?" They were driving by in their SUVs, wide-eyed, with a BigGulp in hand.
It is amazing how people can get worked up into a lather about the abuses they perceive in galaxies far, far from home (Tibet, Iran) which are always committed by "evil" dictatorships, but simply distract themselves with their playstation and iPhone about the injustices and pure government criminality (at a scale not seen anywhere else) here at home which they could actually _change_ if they got off their asses.
