In 2004, I was a Republican for Kerry. Today, I'm still in a suit, but, since I'm a brown-haired girl with glasses, you can guess what I am.
It's amazing how much meaning can now be conveyed with a flag pin. And I don't mean patriotism. Flag pins don't really mean that for me anymore. They don't not mean patriotism, of course. They just mean a sort of co-opted patriotism that, if you listen to some, would specifically exclude me as unAmerican.
