Liberty's Kids

What's wrong with me? I just heard the closing theme for the TV show Liberty's Kids (a cartoon about American history), and thought to myself "Damn, this tune is catchy!" Then I did a Google search and found out that I had just admired a song by Aaron Carter. Shoot me now.

This show's lyrics, although aimed at an audience way too young to vote, seem to encapsulate exactly how I felt about the presidential election:

I'm lookin' at life through my own eyes. Searchin' for a hero to idolize.
Feeling the pain as innocence dies. Looking at life through my own eyes.
I'm hoping and praying for a brighter day. I listen to my heart and I obey.
How can I see it any other way? I'm looking at life (looking at life) through my own eyes.
I mean, doesn't that describe everyone who voted for Kerry? We're so busy looking at life through our own eyes that we forget all the idiots in the red states who see the world totally differently.

Watch the show's opening online here. It includes an awesome rap by Aaron Carter about America and freedom that's almost like an un-ironic version of that America song from Team America: World Police.

The lyrics are here.
