I'm embarrassed to be an American

Institutionalized racism in the White House?!! Why, that's ridiculous! How dare someone even suggest such a thing?!

"What I’m hearing which is sort of scary is they all want to stay in Texas. Everyone is so overwhelmed by the hospitality.

"And so many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this--this (she chuckles slightly) is working very well for them."

- Barbara Bush, former First Lady and mother to our current President

This just makes me...well, I can't say sick, because I already felt that way, so...sicker.
