Democracy in action or inappropriate boorishness?

When outgoing President George W. Bush's name was announced just before emerging from the Capitol building, the assembled masses broke into a cheer of "Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey goodbye!"

The MSNBC anchoring crew tut-tutted, but there was no disguising the delight on the faces of the singing crowd.


One might almost feel sorry for the soon-to-be ex-President, but, you reap what you sow, no?
