Plump, Patriotic Housewife

"I've met a number of Americans over the recent months who are very open in their views on the US and are often embarrassed by what their fellow countrymen have to say.  'I don't know why they all hate us so much.  I'm sure non-Americans are just envious of the US.'  Just visualize the plump housewife in her armchair.  This statement comes from such a lady who has never been outside the US."  - a German expat (a female) living in Thailand made this remark to me in 2007
