Patriotism means caring about your country enough to criticise when necessary.

I have a picture of Obama asking Lilly Ledbetter---yeah, that Lilly Ledbetter---to dance. While Palin and McCain steam in the shadows, no doubt, and mourn all the rights' chopping they could do.

I really, really want to taunt some Pumas right now.

Also the quick moves on shuttering Guantanamo and Gitmo, and his "to do" list wrt health care, lifting the global gag rule, overturning DOMA (I -hope- he can keep that one; be surprised if that one moves as fast as the others)--yeah, sure, he's -just like McCain-, or so much worse. From a -feminist- perspective. Mhm.
