"I am not a good American...I prefer to form my own opinions" - George Carlin
I suppose because I voted for Obama and made a couple of contributions to his campaign in '08, that is the reason I keep getting emails from the Obama.com people.
Here is the latest...for a $15 contribution you (one) can get a coffee mug with his photo and an imprint of his birth certificate on it. Imprinted under the photo is the phrase, "Made in the USA"...the reference is obvious.
But being the cynic that I am...and damn dudes and dudettes, I hope I am wrong...I suspect that if one turned that mug upside down, one would see...Made in China.
Unfortunately, my Scottish antecedent genes prevent me from spending the $15 to find out. Yes, I am a cheap sumbitch...and don't ask me what category my 2008 campaign contributions were in. I do not want to hear the word pittance, just don't do it. He won didn't he?
However, if there is a deep pocket B of C reader out there that would like to purchase said mug and get back to us regards the basic question...hurry up will you?
Think about how fine that Joe is going to taste in that made in
