A belated Independence Day post

Maybe  I'm not as patriotic as I thought I was. I didn't make a 4th of July entry. Although since I made an Independence Day related entry on July 2 and I am making one now on July 6, I guess on average I did.

Anyway,here's a couple of videos that capture the spirit of Independence Day and American patriotism. The first is the scene from the HBO miniseries John Adams of George Washington's inauguration. Watching it gives me chills and makes me feel damn good about being an American. It's also David Morse's finest moment as an actor.

The second one isn't specifically patriotic. You could even call it a little goofy. But I think it's good evidence of what a uniquely wonderful  country America is. You will either know what I mean or you won't.
