There’s no reason to celebrate this new Gallup poll, which shows a record low number of Americans saying that they’re “extremely proud” to be Americans.

But check out that party-line split: less than a third of Democrats say they’re extremely proud to be Americans, compared to three-quarters of Republicans.

Nah, it looks like it’s an absence of Obama that has them more ashamed to be Americans. Sure, he put children in cages and we had the photos to prove it, but at least the media kept reasonably quiet about it, so it was less shameful.

Oh well.

Once the blue wave carries some Democratic Socialists into office to fix everything by eliminating profit and prisons and borders, we can all be proud Americans again.
