When last we heard about Michelle Obama, she was merely (and repeatedly) "sarcastic." Now, though, she rapidly transforming, before our very eyes, into anti-American. Or at least uppity. The problem? She's too proud of her husband and not very proud of her country.

Before a crowd in Milwaukee yesterday, Ms. Obama said: "What we have learned over this year is that hope is making a comeback. It is making a comeback. And let me tell you something — for the first time in my adult lifetime, I am really proud of my country." Which, obviously, everyone took to mean that she hates this nation and is a big commie whiner. Look, here's Mickey Kaus! We can always count on him to not write like the single biggest asshole you've ever met:

If Michelle Obama's default position is set to "Aggrieved," it also suggests something personal, no? Maybe, like many strong wives, she wonders why her husband is the one on the top of the family ticket—which might also explain her strange occasional habit of belittling him in public ("snore-y and stinky" ). Beats me. For whatever reason, she sure seems to have a non-trivial chip on her shoulder and it's not a winning quality.

Yes! White men across the nation demand an answer: why the hell is this black woman anything less than constantly pants-wettingly thrilled with the greatest goddamn nation in the history of the universe?
