About 2:45 Bill Murray lays it on as to what it means to be an American in this clip from his hit movie Stripes.
“We’re all very different people. We’re all not Watusi. We’re not Spartans. We’re Americans. With a capital A huh? You know what that means? Do you? That means our forefathers were kicked out of every decent country in the world. We are the wretched refuse. We’re underdogs. We’re mutts!”
Compared to Obama calling African-Americans mongrels on this morning’s episode of The View and then waffling to include white Americans, I much prefer to be a mutt. American mutts who have helped liberate millions of people across the globe in the past century. American mutts who have helped bring the concepts of personal liberty and freedom to those huddled masses in their homelands. Better yielding crops and superior medecine have also been given to the world by American mutts. I am a proud American mutt.
And that’s a fact jack!
