Loving America

“They [conservatives] love America the way a four-year-old loves her mommy. Liberals love America like grown-ups. To a four-year-old, everything Mommy does is wonderful and anyone who criticizes Mommy is bad. Grown-up love means actually understanding what you love, taking the good with the bad, and helping your loved one grow. Love takes attention and work and is the best thing in the world.”

Al Franken, “Lies And The Lying Liars Who Tell Them

I’ve long held the view that liberals are more honest in their patriotism, acknowledging great achievements like helping to defeat the Nazis, but also sad episodes such as imprisoning loyal Japanese-, German-, and Italian-Americans during the war.

Thanks to Eli Sarver for prompting this post. I recently finished Franken’s book and have been meaning to put up the above quote.

  1. Wow, you read that fast. 😉

    Also, that quote is exactly how I’ve been feeling for years. The other quote is:

    “Ashley was now wearing only brief white panties. She had signaled her desire by removing her shirt and skirt, and by leaning back on the couch. She closed her eyes, concentrating on nothing but Shannon’s tongue and lips. He gently teased her by licking the areas around her most sensitive erogenous zone. Then he slipped her panties down her legs and, within seconds, his tongue was inside her, moving rapidly.”

    I love the re-use of that throughout the book. 🙂

  2. What I would love to see is that book “Those Who Trespass,” outsell one of O’Reilly’s “serious” books.
