Obama: More Patriotic Than George Washington

Certain individuals (and you know who you are; please, do comment!) enjoy forwarding conservative propaganda to me, such as an article by Ann Coulter on why she believes that W will go down in history as the greatest president the United States has ever seen.

I'll let that sink in for a minute.

Are we back? OK. I also often receive anti-Obama rants, articles from and the Media Research Center, and forwarded emails about Obama's unpatriotic behaviors and hidden agenda.

I totally respect my friends' and family members' right to believe what they believe, and even to engage in respectful debate about why they are one-issue voters, for example, or why we should not elect a president whose middle name is Hussein.

However. I can't sit idly by, when I have been given the austere responsibility of a powerful and influential tool, The Blog. I am compelled to get the word out about Obama's true spirit of national pride, his devout NON-MUSLIM faith, and his love for typical American pasttimes.

Here are some examples, reported by Slate magazine's Christopher Beam:
  • Barack Obama wears a FLAG PIN at all times. Even in the shower.
  • Barack Obama ends every sentence by saying, "WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL."
  • His favorite book is THE BIBLE, which he has memorized.
  • Every weekend, Barack and Michelle take their daughters HUNTING.

You can read the rest of the list here. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Thanks, E.! I needed something to brighten up the day.

(Except, what's scary is that there really are people who think the things on that list are essential characteristics of a U.S. president...)
