Isn't this from Copland's "Lincoln Portrait?"  I know there's also a Dan Quayle parody.

I'm still trying to identify the dust bowl cartoon with the kid saying "We is po'" at the beginning and end, if anyone knows that film.

"Those who had been successful adapted themselves to the world around them, had bent their greater mental powers into the pattern of acceptable action.  And this dulled their usefulness, limited their capacity, hedged their ability with restrictions set up to fit less extraordinary people."  -- Clifford D. Simak, "Census" (1944)
