USA 001Tomorrow is Independence Day, and it’s also the fortieth anniversary of the 200th anniversary of the birth of this country. So tonight we’re going to re-catch “Bicenntennial Fever” with a series of videos showing just how excited this country could manage to be only two years removed from the disgrace of Watergate and President Nixon’s resignation. Above you see a pretty drugged-up looking cartoon produced using taxpayer money. Below you’ll see various tributes to our forefathers, and even a look back at the bicenntennial from 1977.

So you can either watch these clips and feel really patriotic, or just make fun of the clothes and hairstyles. It’s a free country.
