Didn't Love America

Remember the ridiculous uproar over Michelle Obama's statement:

"for the first time in my adult life I am proud of my country because it feels like hope is finally making a comeback,"

The first lady defended her statement, but right wing attack dogs (including Cindy "Stay Classy" McCain) called her unpatriotic for it.

Oopsie. Now it turns out that McCain said in an interview with Sean Hannity that he didn't love America until he was a POW.

"I really didn't love America until I was deprived of her company." - John McCain

He's trying to make a point in the same way Michelle Obama was trying to make a point about certain feelings becoming stronger as a result of circumstances.

But what's really naughty is that when Fox published the transcript of the interview on its website, the whole bit about being a POW and not loving America was missing. Orwellian much?

You can see some of the video and read the details here. If you happen to run into Cindy "Skipped Finishing School" McCain, and you're in earshot when she trashes Mrs. Obama, maybe you can remind her that John McCain didn't love America until he was a POW. That should put an end to that stupid "argument."
