God, how I hate mindless chanting! (unless it's of the completely mindless ilk)

Nobody is happier about the inauguration of Barack Obama, but that stuff has got to go. It reminds me of the U-S-A stuff we sometimes see at the Olympics. I was okay with it after the 1980 hockey victory because circumstances somehow made it appropriate, but since then.... it seems so boorish.

Same with today.
