Remember when I said back in the day that we were gonna win?
We're gonna win. We're really, really gonna win.

And, oh yeah! Found on the Internet a few days ago:
"Stuart" by the Dead Milkmen. I had completely and totally forgotten about "Stuart," and you'd think with Iowa legalizing same-sex marriage and all, I'd remember without someone reminding me.
My God! Truly prescient in its way. And really, really good for a bit of a giggle.
I keeeeed Iowa. I keeed because I love.
