"My country has never been in worse shape," says Case, who's outspokenly anti-Bush. "Lots of people are like, 'I want to move to Canada,' and I'm like, 'Now's not the time.' I love America, I think the people are wonderful and the geography is amazing and I love it as much as I love Canada, for sure -- and not in a yucky patriotic way, but in a sweet, bittersweet way. It's where you're from -- what are you going to do?"
