I think I might be a bit too jaded to watch the Olympics. It has reduced me to micro-blogging my gripes. Eh. Have you seen the “all-american” ad that Bud is running? Images of “America”, right down to the Nascar and cowboys and blue-collar workers, the whole time proclaiming “this is our tradition.” I didn’t record it and can’t seem to find it anywhere online yet, so I can’t show it to you.

I’ve been to Belgium. It doesn’t look like that commercial. Tradition (and the United States) is being turned on its ear. Globalism isn’t a tradition.

Full disclosure: Belgian beer is delicious. Bud, on the other hand, is not.
