Michelle: "You're all ignorant, but that's America for you!"

The hits just keep on coming for Michelle Obama:

We don't like being pushed outside of our comfort zones. You know it right here on this campus. You know people sitting at different tables, y'all living in different dorms. I was there. Y'all not talking to each another, taking advantage of the fact that you're in this diverse community because sometimes it's easier to hold onto your own stereotypes and misconceptions, it makes you feel justified in your ignorance. That's America. So the challenge for us is, are we ready for change?

That's America... where we feel justified in our ignorance.

Of course, husband Barack did his best to cheer us up earlier this week. When asked by a seven-year old why he was running for president, Obama's incisive response spurred a wave of renewed patriotism throughout the country.

America, uh, is... is... no longer, uh... what it... it could be, what it once was. And I say to myself: I don't want that future for my children.

Isn't it wonderful we have a candidate -- with a spouse -- who both love their country so very much?
