America, The Beautiful.

"Real America" isn't the fever-dream of gun-toting, government-hating, community-despising white-washed Christian suburbia conjured up by Sarah Palin and other right wing extremists, it's this:

"This is America, where a white Catholic male Republican judge was murdered on his way to greet a Democratic Jewish woman member of Congress, who was his friend. Her life was saved initially by a 20-year old Mexican-American gay college student, and eventually by a Korean-American combat surgeon, all eulogized by our African American President."
