Can we?

"Yes we can" was a great slogan. I really admire it for its tenacity. But I cannot tell you how it irritates me now. People find out I am American and it just comes out of their mouth, like word vomit with a big grin to follow. I can do nothing but smile back and give a thumbs up. I am starting to feel like a celebrity that only did one mentionable movie. Like, Hugh Grant with the Christmas song in About a Boy(it wasn't even his either).
I suppose it is not the worst thing that people could say to me. They could be thanking Americans for single handedly pulling down the world economy.

At least its not something about Bush or Iraq....
