Gee, I Wonder Why Others Hate Americans

american-flag.jpgI turned on the Super Bowl early yesterday hoping that the game started already. It didn’t. Instead, I caught a weird Fox ritual in which they have a bunch of NFL stars recite the Declaration of Independence. Yeah, that makes sense. What the fuck? Everyone knows that a gazillion countries watch the Super Bowl so was this some sort of nationalistic rah-rah so our enemies know that we won’t give up? Or was it to remember that we hate the British? Or that we can read? God, it’s bad enough that they recruit kids for the armed forces in the parking lot of sports games, now we are letting FOX speak for us as a country to other countries? Tom Petty starts with “American Girl”. God, this is a sporting event. It’s not a pep assembly. So manipulative.
