Open Thread: Why Craig Ferguson Loves America

Yesterday, CBS Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson announced he would leave his program at the end of the year. This was not completely surprising given that he was passed over for promotion to the Late Show in favor of Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert.But what impresses us about the Scottish-born Ferguson is his deep pride and love for his adopted home country. [Plus there's that time he called Richard Wolffe out for liberal bias.]

Ferguson has repeatedly spoken warmly of his love for the United States, which, after all compelled him to become an American citizen as well as to write his autobiography, "American on Purpose." So we thought we'd include a video of an interview Ferguson had with Borders Presents a few years back. You'll want to skip ahead to 4:21 for the relevant portion. Leave your comments on this or any thing else on your mind in the comments section for this today's open thread post.
