Michelle Obama: For the first time in my adult lifetime I am really proud of my country. And not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change.
Wingnutosphere: ZOMFG!!!1! Michelle Obama hates America! Why, they’d be speaking German in Cambodia if it warn’t fer us! And what about the goddam Olympics? No, there aren’t many black people in the Winter Olympics, I meant the ones in the summer, wiseass! She went to Harvard, for God’s sake! Can’t she at least be proud of that breeding ground for liberal fascism? The goddam fucking rugrats from the Anacostia projects I took a fucking cocksucking couple of hours out of my motherfucking goddam cocking day to work with that one time were sure as assbanging shit proud of this here motherfucking tittysucking anal stringwarted country! FUUUUUUCKKKKK! GAHHHHHHKKK! MRMMMBBPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!!1!!!! MICHELLE. OBAMA. DOES. NOT. SPEAK. FOR. ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11
Michelle Obama: Wow, that feeling didn’t last very long.
UPDATE: The Wankeress takes a break from comparing the tribulations of her Lenten chocolate fast to those of an Auschwitz victim, to note that TEH HITLERIES! THEY R EVERYWHERE HATING AMERICA!
UPDATE II: Don Surber floats some trial-balloon spin on Michelle Obama …
No contest. The winner is the one who said: “I have and always will be proud of my country.”
Michelle Obama. Millionaire. Harvard Law grad. Wife of a senator. A person who has been afforded the best of opportunities in that land of opportunity that we call the United States, told a crowd in Milwaukee this: “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country, and not just because Barack has done well, but because I think people are hungry for change.”
Cindy McCain. Also a millionaire. USC educated. Wife of a senator. A person who has been afforded the best of opportunities in that land of opportunity that we call the United States, told a crowd in Brookfield, Wisc.: “I am proud of my country. I don’t know about you? If you heard those words earlier, I am very proud of my country.”
So, Don, you’re saying that the elite should be proud of their country because they get to be elite in it. Gotcha. It’s one way to look at patriotism. But it’s a little short on Mom and apple pie and playing golf on the moon. You know, the stuff that’s supposed to make all us non-millionaire, state-school congressmen’s wives bleed red-white-and-blue.
So back to the drawing board of slime for you, mister.
UPDATE III: Victor Davis Tiberius Pontius Pilate Jefferson Monroe Chinese Gordon Father Tom Coughlin Hanson advises that ungrateful welp Michelle Obama (Damn Her Eyes For Impudence!) and her ingrate of a layabout of a husband to make haste for Boston to seek the counsel of a cynical old cigar-chomping campaign-scarred potato-faced Irish drunk. You know, to find out what plays with the kids casting votes in America these days.
UPDATE IV: Malkin weighs in, of course. Wouldn’t miss this one for all the garbage in Graeme Frost’s alleyway. Lots of funny stuff in the comments, but the person who thinks Don King is the shining example of an American for Michelle Obama to learn from, takes the cake:

Mrs Obama needs to spend an hour with Don King. Yes, that Don King, the boxing promoter. He can help her to see all the wonderful things in America that are hidden in plain site. If you have never heard him speak about his love of our country, you should. He is truly an American success story and he knows why.
