Michelle Obama's Gaffe
"...Barack Obama tried to play down his wife's statement, but it's not the sort of remark that can be spun away. To say that "for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country," and trying to justify it as pride in a political campaign, carries a casually stark assumption that there's nothing within this country that's really worth praising..."
When I first read what Michelle (I told The Man the other day she would end up being a problem for Obama) said I was going to list as many things as i could that any American could be proud of...but this writer beat me to it...(well, sort of, he did very recent things and I would have gone a bit more grandiose).
