Random Top 10: A Tribute to America

As much as I bitch about America (which happens nearly every time I watch American Idol or see what a complete fucktard George Bush is) there are some generally good things about this place: Hollywood, Oprah, Jake Gyllenhaal, celebreailty, day-to-day coverage on the happenings of Britney Spears, freedom of speech (which allows me to get away with calling the president a fucktard), Emmy-award winner Kathy Griffin. I could go on, but you get the point. I kinda have a lot to be thankful for. So, in honor of America's 232nd birthday, here are some joyous tributes to America. Enjoy!




"You look like the Fourth of July! Makes me want to have a hot dog real bad."

I understand Tilda's not American, but what other actress born in this country have you seen show this much patriotism at one point?


"Hello, Mr. President. Can I ask you something? Is the oval office as hard to vaccum as I think it is?"


I'm not a huge fan of West Side Story, but Rita Moreno is absolutely amazing here. Love that skirt action!

"I chose Mount Rushmore 'cause to live in a country where you can take an ugly, old mountain and put faces on it- faces of great Americans who did so much to make this country super great- well, that makes me, Rebecca Leeman, proud to be an American."

"Why aren't they spinning?"


What can I say? I'm a sucker for James Cagney, this movie and patriotic tunes. They all get me every time.

#2 is one of the greatest episodes of any show ever. Plus, the continual presence of Rachel Dratch never hurts.
