I'm calling the Dobbs

Jon Stewart's reaction to Lou Dobbs' declaration that there shouldn't be a St. Patrick's Day parade. Stewart was reviewing the media coverage of pro-immigrant rallies and on CNN Dobbs was making reference to an immigration rally where Mexican flags were flown, and said that only American flags should be flown in America. Stewart warned Dobbs of the effect on "New York's parade based economy". Starts at 2:25 on the QuickTime version.

So where's the United States get off calling itself "America" in the first place? America is a hemisphere, not one country in it. Even the French aren't arrogant enough to call the place "Europe" to the exclusion of Germany, Greece, Finland, and Spain.

The Mexican flag IS an American flag.
