Sorry, Canadians - You're Not Mentioned
I'm really tired, (and if you read my posts at American Street and Pandagon, no doubt you're tired of me too). So, here's something suggested by Vivek (thanks, Vivek!) that I've been saving for just such an occasion: I bid you stand, Men of the West.
It's a page composed by an Australian guy who explains how "The Lord of the Rings" is an analogy for basically everything.
He starts by mentioning that he was home watching "The Return of the King" on his "kick-ass stereo system" when he was struck by Aragorn's speech outside the Black Gates (especially the part about standing, Men of the West):

I think this insight helps us to better understand President Bush's plan to spread democracy in the Middle East -- since there can be no appeasement of the Orc/Muslims, and we can't really turn them back into Elves by saying the magic word "freedom," we must use zombies against them, like in the movie.
Anyway, check out the webpage and discover who the Americans, English, Australians, Chinese, Indians, and traitorous Left are.

And I have two posts over at Pandagon; one is a Townhall Review, and the other one is also a Townhall Review. Yup, lots and lots of Townhall Review over at Pandagon.
You can go read them if you want -- I'll just nap until you get back.
Oh, you're back now, huh? Well, then why don't you check out this blog I heard about somewhere called Bats Left Throws Right. It's by some guy named James Briggs Stratton "Doghouse" Riley -- he looks kinda familiar, so I think I must have gone to junior high with him, or something.
