@OldOllie:
Looks like what you're calling "being a liberal bigot" is a dislike for conservative bigotry. I expect better from you, having read other comments you've made. Yes, it would be nice to see our colors more but, no, it wasn't worth more than 4 minutes of broadcast time.

"who even cares about fox news?"

"Oh, I don't know...only about three times as many people as watch CNN and MSNBC combined!"

Seeing that cable news is arguably the worst thing to happen to America I wouldn't be proud of those numbers. They get the most ratings because they are masters of sensationalism. News is boring. It shouldn't be addictive or make you hate half of your country. I feel sorry for people who still watch Fox News or NBC News (MSNBC).

The were merely making factual observations regarding the uniforms of the athletes today compared to those in earlier Olympics.

...And complaining how they don't have enough flag colour in them, after which she says "So how do we show our patriotism at the games?" So clearly she identifies uniforms with patriotism, not medals, sportsmanship, fan turnout etc. The only bigot here is you.

"We are a very nationalistic nation..."

Couldn't have said it better myself. I like his use of the word "nationalistic" instead of "patriotic."

@earplay What you call "exceptionalism," I call being a liberal bigot.

@jtrebowski Did you even listen to the discussion? They weren't whining or complaining that we're not patriotic enough. The were merely making factual observations regarding the uniforms of the athletes today compared to those in earlier Olympics.

Only a Fox-hating liberal bigot could read anything else into it.

Leave it to FOX. Amazing athletes from all over the US spend their lives hoping to represent the US in the Olympics. Dedicating all their hard work, all their struggle, all their success to their country.

What does FOX think of this? "Eeeeh, that swimsuit didnt have enough red, white and blue. How disgraceful."

@drawnam61 - And have you noticed how few medals the Americans and Russians win since drug testing took off.

Are you actually serious? Go check the US medal count moron. Were going to be on pace for winning the most gold and total.

Beautiful beautiful Amercia, the further right you allow clowns like this to take you, the less of a great nation you become and more of a conference of village idiots. Your Athletes are doing brilliantly and being brilliantly supported by the Americans whove made the trip to London (unlike these bozos).What a non-discussion of a non-story. Your athletes have earned their places and their medals by their OUTSTANDING efforts - if that isn't enough, hold a rally, don't watch the olympics.

I think you are un-American if you watch cable news. All they do is make you hate half of America.

Fox News caters strictly to morons.

OldOllie: "I found nothing in this discussion that could possibly offend anyone other than a Fox-hating liberal bigot."

Then you've missed the point of my post entirely. Our athletes have worked hard to proudly represent our country, and they've done so in a stellar way. Many average citizens flew over there to cheer and support them. Millions of Americans gather around tv's in bars and in their homes every day to cheer our athletes on, and all Fox "News" can do is claim that we're not patriotic enough. patriotism has nothing to do with what you wear, or how hard you wave those little flags. It's about loving our country and loving our citizens, which is something you've shown very little inclination of doing.

In grade school I got straight A's and my parents didn't even notice because I wasn't wearing bright enough colors.

@Bealzebubble - It was just the English complaining that there wasn't enough red in them really. There's generally plenty blue, which is fine by me, as a Scot.
