Roundtable: Me First! Gimme Gimme!

Or: The US is the Terrell Owens of the World

I agree with Steph, the Incurable Insomniac, the US, as a whole, has the mind and attitude of an adolescent jock-bully. You know the kind. Aggro, always bragging about the football team, regardless of their record, and as likely to kick your ass as spit on you.

That's the bad news. The good news is that we've yet to reach the point where we turn into overweight, balding, used-car salesmen. We could still become that earnest, "ah-shucks" boy next door who knows how to party. Or that kinda quiet really cool guy who's in a band and knows a whole bunch of pointless movie trivia...

Okay, not likely, but we can dream.

Do you agree with this characterization? Do you try to keep up with the Jones'? How exactly did we become this way? Tell it to the Steph.
