There’s nothing more un-American than calling someone un-American because they have different views than you.

Sarah Palin has been quoted as saying “I enjoy visiting the more ‘Pro American’ states”. If some states are more ‘Pro American’ then by definition others are “Anti-American”. This is and old tactic, that is being brought up again in this election, however it has no place in any election. Republican representative Michele Bachmann tells Chris Matthews on Hardball that the media should probe congress for “anti-American” views:

Please define the parameters for finding Anti-American views Michele, I suspect it will be anyone with views different than your own.

These comments lead to $640,000 in donations for her opponent Elwyn Tinklenberg in the first 48 hours following their airing. This was more than he had raised during the entire third quarter.
