So Much For "Country First"

While we never really had a chance to land the 2016 Olympics in Chicago (since we just had the 2002 Winter Games and South America has never held one), its astonishing to see how giddy the conservatives are that the Windy City was the first one voted out.

Whatever happened to that slogan from the McCain campaign; Country First?

Check out how this group, Americans For Prosperity (one of the main organizing groups behind the tea party protests) reacted to the news that Chicago was out of the running:

Is it just me or does it seem that a certain group of Americans only loves this country when they are in control of it?

    You mean like liberals from 2000-2008? or conservatives from 1992-2000? etc. etc. C'mon man, this isn't anything new. You just have chosen sides. Where was your outrage before?

    When from 1992-2008 did either party react with glee that the US was voted down in something?

    Did the Democrats react with laughter and clapping when the US was voted off the UN Human Rights Council during the Bush Administration? No one from either party did.

    This is a new (and incredibly cynical) phenomena – thus the outrage.
