noun
Etymology:

: one who loves his or her country and supports its authority and interests


From Rush Limbaugh (membership required, though not advised):
I would be honored if the Drive-By Media headlined me all day long: “Limbaugh: I Hope Obama Fails.” Somebody’s gotta say it.

Rush may (or may not) love his country, but he suddenly does not support its authority, specifically Barack Obama, our new wartime president.

The point cannot be made any clearer: Rush Limbaugh is not a patriot. He would rather the president fail in order to advance his own agenda. Remember how harsh the right wing talking heads were to those critical of former President Bush after we invaded Iraq? These people were branded as being unpatriotic simply for their criticisms. Well, what's good for the goose...
