My Answer…

…to my own question below:

Sir, you have orchestrated one of the great disappointments of my lifetime. No one has done more to divide this country and turn people with different ideas against each other than you, and not only have you made being the ugly American fashionable, but you have turned being the ugly American into a political movement to be used against other Americans.

But I’ve got news for you, buster. I’m an American, try as you might to marginalize, demonize, or silence me. Short of throwing me out on my ass, there’s nothing you can do to make that untrue, as much as you’d like it not to be. I’m a progressive, I’m a voter, and I’m an American. And all your vitriolic rhetoric from here to eternity won’t change that. So I win.
