Is it possible to really love your country even though you think it's just plain mean and you've only become proud of it twenty-five years into your adulthood after it confers an enormous benefit and accompanying prestige on your husband?
I suppose so.
But isn't it more likely under those circumstances that you've just come to love your country because it elevated your husband against all odds? In which case, under the most charitable assessment, it would amount to an epiphany – "Hey, this country may really be as great as they say it is!"
But then if Bobo and Mickey hadn't been given this high honor solely because they're black, is it safe to say that America would still be just plain mean and Mama Michelle would still be ashamed of her country?
I saw a bit of Mickey's speech last night. It was hard to watch for two reasons:
a) Like her husband, Mickey is singularly repulsive – but in a different way. Bobo is the sing-song arrogant undertaker, Mickey is the mean- ass little woman – something her Stepford demeanor couldn't conceal
b) My wife was yelling to get her off the TV screen, and you have to know my wife to understand how rare it is for her to be so repulsed and to convey it by yelling.
Such is the nature of the reactions Bobo and Mickey elicit – they make thinking people scream. If they lose, look for them to become obnoxious commercial pitchmen on TV. Oh, I'm sorry, make that "pitchpersons."
But seriously, what happens if Bobo does lose? Will the 2012 election be a "Groundhog Day" for Democrats? Will Hillary and Bobo and Jo-Bo find themselves vying for the nomination yet again? Isn't the mere anticipation of it enough to cause you to want Bobo to lose this year?
Everyone will have learned from the current experience and it will become a real-life chess game – with bigger and better insults and bigotry!
Will Bobo learn how many States there are?
Will Mickey be proud of her country for the second time?
Will Hillary have had a facelift?
Will Bill be dead?
Will Biden have even more hair and less brains?
And will Pelosi and Biden still be Catholic?
I'm already giddy with anticipation.
And for the first time in my adult life I'll be proud..
Ah well, you get the idea.
