Counterprogramming Michelle Obama

Washington State Republicans our trying to smack Michelle Obama around online as she makes a campaign stop today in Seattle.

They decided to take out after her “really proud of this country” comment from a few months ago — yes, that is a way back in the campaign, so they’d have to consider it an oldie but goodie — and offer their own take on what makes them proud.

They enlisted several Republican women, including King County Chairwoman Lori Sotelo and state Sen. Val Stevens, to talk about what makes the feel great about America.

For good measure, they end with the group doing a medley of the Pledge of Allegiance, and a quote from Ronald Reagan about freedom.

If it doesn’t turn your blood red, white and blue, you must be some kind of commie pinko.
