Senator Barack Obama

Britney Spears Patriotism

Oliver asks:

If Sen. Obama wins, and Democrats increase their majorities in the House and Senate, will conservatives/Republicans still incessantly try to lecture those of us on the left about what “real” and “patriotic” Americans believe?

Yes they will. Since 9/11, all we heard about was that patriotism includes supporting the president in a time of war -- no matter what. The Britney Spears Theory of Patriotism. The Republicans will conveniently forget this if Senator Obama wins -- the same way they did during Bosnia and Somalia. I'll be really interested to hear their excuses.
