Patriotism in action

The Smothers Brothers used to do a bit - actually, maybe they still do - in which Tommy mocks the song "I Talk to the Trees" from the Broadway musical "Paint Your Wagon" as "a stupid song from a stupid show" while Dick demands with increasing insistence "Have you seen it?" Finally, a frustrated Tommy bursts out with "I'm an American! I don't have to see something to know it's stupid!"
"I can speak for myself and I can speak for the President, and I can assure you that neither of us have seen [Fahrenheit 9/11]," said White House Communications Director Dan Bartlett. ...

"This is a film that doesn't require us to actually view it to know it's filled with factual inaccuracies."
Clearly, a fine American.
