    Meb Keflezighi... Never been so ****** an Ken Miller!

    There are so many things wrong with what Ken Miller said today on the radio. First Boston Marathon since the bombing and this is what he had to say (I'm not going to link because he doesn't deserve the traffic)...

    "Should the winner of the Boston Marathon have a little asterisk beside it this year? I mean, I know you want to claim him. He's not an American. He took a test." (speaking about Meb Keflezighi)

    I'd say it makes him a better american than Ken Miller since he had to actually go through the process of becoming a citizen, and wasn't just lucky enough to be born here. Also, if Ken Miller doesn't think Meb Keflezighi is an american, can we give Meb Ken's "americaniss". We'd definitely be better off.

    The correct solution is don't listen to Ken Miller.

    So a Canadian is complaining about it? Is Ken an American citizen now?

    If an American Olympian wins a medal but wasn't born in the US, should that not be celebrated? So confused now.

    IIRC correctly he moved here with his family when he was 12. It's not like he packed up from Eritrea (I think that's where he's from) at age 30 and decided he wanted to be an American.

    Well if it makes you feel any better...I thought the same thing as Ken, which is a rarity for me.

    WTF is the point of having a citizenship test, if the people who pass it are going to be treated as second-class?

    Does he think Melvin Ejim should have an asterisk next to his claim to be Canadian just because his dad and/or mom had to take a test?

    Note: I don't actually know, but I'm assuming somebody had to take a test so that Ejim could have both Canadian and Nigerian citizenship, but I doubt it was Melvin himself.

    This, the guy is an American. He wants to be here. He worked at becoming one. End of story.
