The American People. Greg Knauss' latest offering let's the Americans know who is speaking on their behalf. Nifty use of RSS technology. [via msippey]

Can he add a counter for every time a pol uses the cliche "give government back to the American people"?

I'm sure we'll hear WAY too much of that one in the coming months.

I wish Greg could kind of open it up to track other keywords and make feeds on the fly. Personally, I'd love to see the "September 11" or "9/11" feed as well, to see how often all parties invoke it.

I think we can all agree that anyone who claims to speak for The America People is full of doodoo beans.

The American People think, feel, want, believe, and simply are.

Very cool.

The ascribing of the desire of a majority to the whole is always ridiculous, but especially so in a political system so given to either/or dichotomies. In the spirit of Rebecca Blood's collective nouns for Goths and Mac users, might I suggest a conflict of Americans?

I want a site that lets me know when the American people are killed in a bus plunge, the media's favorite term for any accident involving a bus, but never a truck and only rarely a car

P.s. There already is a Bus Plunge site, lovingly compiled by hand.
