Signs that America is still sane.
The This Land parody at JibJab was viewed more than 10 million times in July, compared to only 3.3 million hits combined for the official Kerry and Bush web sites over the same period. So far it has been viewed 50 million times as the result of word of mouth and e-mail promotion, compared to average TV viewership of about 21 million for the Democratic and Republican political conventions which had a gazillion dollars of political and media promotion behind them.

The new JibJab parody premiered on Jay Leno's Tonight Show and already is at the top of the Internet charts. So hate politics hasn't taken over the nation yet.
