When I voted earlier this morning, I chanced to have Peter Gabriel's "Shock the Monkey" playing in my head, because it chanced to be playing on my computer just before I left the apartment. I think it's a surprisingly apt description of what we should all be doing today. Y'see, the United States government is like a monkey. It doesn't really think for itself, it eats or breaks whatever it gets a hold of, and it has a disturbing habit of flinging poo. So it has to be carefully monitored by people, and every so often it needs a good shock to get it back on the right track.
Either that or it's a song about masturbation. Whichever.
