Seriously? It's a potentially damaging character trait that Barack Obama doesn't wear the flag? Like a lapel pin? Really? Really. Really?!
What a fucking joke. Yeah, I f-bombed, and I don't mind.
Cops and servicemen wear the flag, but you don't, Senator Obama. How can we really believe that you love this country if you don't WEAR A TWO-CENT PIECE OF ENAMEL OR METAL ON YOUR LAPEL?
I wish he hadn't taken the bait on that question and answered it with the same dismissive spirit he's used on other pointless questions so far.
Okay, at least he's calling it now a manufactured issue that distracts us from actual work. And yet Georgie Stephanopoulos says, with a straight face, "and if you get the nomination, you'll have to beat back that distraction."
NO HE DOESN'T. Only if you treat it like a legitimate issue, which you are because you're asking about it like it's a question that matters.
At this exact moment - with the Tom Coburn example - I like Obama. I want to believe him.
And Hillary's bullshit answer to the question takes her WAY down. Catherine - you better rehab me quick! HRC is seeming like an amazingly small person right now. Petty, small, and foolish. Chomping at the bait. It's ugly.
