I wish I could remember my father’s exact arch remark every time something shameful was revealed about our country and its people. He said it the same way each time. “Doesn’t it make you proud to be an American?” may have been it, though it could also have been “Makes you glad to be an American….” Words to that effect. I heard him say it many times, but, sadly, I can’t be sure which words composed the exact phrase.
I’m thinking of this because my sister alerted me to an imagination beggaring “informercial” she’d seen on TV. While I was talking to her I found the two minute video ad, which I pass on to you without further comment. Except to say, order your’s today, supplies are limited — and satire is now officially dead in America.
