Idiot.

'It was FDR who asked us to do that, in honor of the blood that was being shed by our sons and daughters in far-off places.’

As my friend the shrink says: "No capacity for introspection".

Americans also invented the English language! -- Mitt Romney

Not only is Mitt flat out wrong, even if what he said was true, wtf is it supposed to mean? Does placing the hand on the heart incur magical properties that somehow makes people better? And it's not as if Americans were too apathetic to engage in in some kind of patriotic gesture prior to then. This is the same pointless cultural signaling to create divisions where there are none, warmed over.

Mitt knows his audience...today's GOP base would much rather reinforce their intense belief in American exceptionalism than hear anything factual.

This isn't belief in American exceptionalism- this is belief in America fuck yeah. I mean damn I love our country as much as the next guy but I think it's lame that Mitt and the other candidates resort to lying about other countries to do that. But I guess that sells with the GOP base just like Newt putting down New Yorkers for riding the Subway.

Someone should show him one of those vintage photos of American schoolchildren pledging allegiance with right arms outstretched, and ask him whether he thinks we should go back to that.

Of course, I keep hoping somebody dumps a bucket of water on Donald Trump's head during a public appearance, so clearly I'm shallow and biased.

That would be the second worst possible thing you could do to someone wearing a Mogwai on their head.
