Can't Stop the Beat

Mark Blankenship processes his mixed feelings about the election--yea for Barack, nay for gays--and finds fresh hope, of course, in Hairspray. As I posted before, I still love this exchange from Mark O'Donnell's libretto, in which, after Tracy tells Corny Collins that she wants to grow up to be the first female president, she's asked:
Corny Collins: As your first act as president, what would you do?
Tracy Turnblad: I'd make everyday Negro Day!

Change we can believe in, and dance to.
