Default FYI: Liberals love America too, y'know

This kind of sh!7 makes my brain bleed.

A North Carolina congressman locked in a tight re-election race admitted Tuesday to recently telling a crowd of John McCain supporters that "liberals hate real Americans," the latest in a string of comments from Republicans that appear to question Democrats' patriotism.
What don't some people get about this?!? Yes, I'm a social liberal. I'm also an atheist. But I don't hate "real" Americans (WTF makes other people a more real American than I am?!?!), and I don't hate Christians or any other kind of believers. Although people like this jacka55 aren't making me love 'em, either.

Maybe this was at the same NC rally that Palin said it was the small pockets of America like the one they were in that were real...that were pro-American....inferring that the larger areas of the United States were not pro-American.

The best part of this story for me is that he totally denied saying it. Then it turns out there's a tape. Freaking liar.

Look, I think that the Republican strategy of division is going to backfire on them this year. It's worked in the past, but now I think that people are tired of the nastiness, and having people question their patriotism. Personally I am tired of it. If the Reps. don't want me to vote for them, they've got it.

These kinds of gaffs by the Rep side aren't going to help Obama as long as we have idiots like Murtha out there calling people racist. The Dem side has to just shut up and give the Reps enough rope. They'll hang themselves, you betcha.

I think Conservatives are Pro-American (out for one American). But Liberals are Pro-Americans (out for ALL Americans). What would our country be like without Liberals:
