Karissa Shannon’s Patriotic Bikini (PHOTOS)

Karissa Shannon really makes a person swell with patriotic pride, doesn’t she?

The 4th of July isn’t until Sunday, but the Girls Next Door alum got a jump on displaying her love of country on Thursday by prancing around the sands of Malibu while wearing a red, white and blue bikini and waving Old Glory.

America the beautiful? You betcha!

Let’s join Karissa in honoring our Founding Fathers by clicking through the photo gallery, shall we?
