This is not a cheerocracy, this is democracy.

In the movie classic Bring It On, Kirsten Dunst's character has the following exchange with a fellow cheerleader:

Torrance Shipman: Courtney, this is not a democracy, it's a cheerocracy. I'm sorry, but I'm overruling you.

Courtney: You are being a cheer-tator Torrance and a pain in my ass!

Living in Chicago in 2009, it often feels like that.
