Contentions

Just in Case You Missed It

John McCain’s wife, Cindy, makes clear that she is proud of her country. Others have pointed out the difference in attitude between McCain, a man who actually suffered on behalf of his country, and the spectacle of the rich and privileged expressing no recognition of, let alone appreciation for, the benefits derived from being Americans. So far Michelle Obama is not getting much media sympathy. However, I am sure it is only a matter of time before Obama’s enraptured media allies will accuse conservatives of questioning the couple’s patriotism. Clever, isn’t it: those tricky conservatives got her to bring it up and reveal her own disdain for pre-Obama America. (One wonders, by the way, if she fell into despair for her country again after the New Hampshire primary results became known.)
