Open Mouth, Insert Foot

With Hillary sucking vapors, it's time now for us to sink the ship of His Majesty, Barack Obama. It's a long-shot, I know. But remember kids, even the Titanic sank...

Probable future First Lady Michelle Obama shot her own husband in the foot yesterday when she said this: (here's the video)

For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country
Really Michelle? In the last 25 or so years you have not once had a single moment of pride for your country?? A country that has provided you with a life of wealth and prestige that most around the world can only dream of. A country that will send both you and your husband to Ivy League schools so you can have fancy careers. A country where your children can attend private schools in a wealthy, safe neighborhood. A country that has provided you with a life of financial success and prosperity. A country where you can worship as you choose. A country where you can go to the market and not fear that you'll be blown up because of your religion. A country who triumphantly stared terrorism right back in the face after the cowardly 9/11 attcks... All this, and yet only your husband's run for the White House has given you a sense of pride?!?! You should be ashamed of yourself, Michelle. Remember, if it sucks here so badly, Canada's just upstairs.

I suppose, though, that this shouldn't come as much of a surprise... After all, Barack doesn't feel patriotic enough to wear American flag pin lapels or to cover his heart and recite our own National Anthem - so why are we surprised to hear that the Obamas have hated America for the last quarter of a century??
