We built that. With a song, too!
One of the themes of the GOP pep rally, built on the inability to understand the English language which some members of the party want to make the official language of the land.
And directly supported by Uncle Sam himself:

I'm waiting for them to trot out a business guy who DID build it himself. Without the safety net of getting your old job back if you fail like Romney had, or being born rich. Without the help of his mother to raise him (or dad, or dads, or moms, or you know), schools to teach him, hospitals to help him be born and stay healthy . Yep. I want to see the guy who fell from an airplane during delivery and landed on a desert island and now is a multi-millionaire. Oh, wait, the plane doesn't work as it would have been built by somebody else, not the savvy business god that retroactively created the universe. He has to have spontaneously developed out of thin air, because his mother also would have helped him by carrying him around in her womb, which she is not free to make decisions for, unlike Mitt and his opinion and its difference from the GOP platform. He can not in any way have benefitted from the efforts of American soldiers, research supported by the government in science, etc etc etc. Can't have had any help nor received any advice or assistance from anybody, and had to develop everything for his company by himself. And forget English; somebody spoke that a long time ago.
Then they can blab all they want.
But didn't God create the Earth... ?

OK, OK. It's 3:00am and I couldn't sleep. Watched parts of the GOP convention and was left speechless for an hour.
