Nice move

So, in my efforts to ascertain the motives for France's and the Netherlands' no votes, I came to a realization: Europeans are awesome. Apparently they're feeling a bit upset with their leaders, so they vote in a way that reflects that.

This is a very curious practice to me, as an American. Far as I can tell, when my leader screws up really bad he gets more votes.

Just one thing you guys: could you maybe, um, not derail the whole EU constitution with your complaints, and vote your mind during normal elections? Cuz, while we refuse to change our leaders and get more of the same, you all are seriously fucking with progress.

You don't understand. Americans, for decades now, have been taught to treat failures kindly soas to preserve their self-esteem. What matters is not success but effort. That was why Bush repeatedly assured us that being president was "hard work". If he was giving it his all, what more did we have the right to expect?
