Flag Pins And Hypocrisy

-- by Dave Johnson

I was thinking about the "flag pin" question, and went and looked at the video. Sure enough, the woman accusing Obama of being unpatriotic for not wearing a flag pin ... wait for it ... isn't wearing a flag pin. The smarmy anchorman implying Obama isn't patriotic for not wearing a flag pin ... guess what ... isn't wearing a flag pin.

And, of course, if you go to Google Images and look for pics of John McCain, none of them show him wearing a flag pin. Of course, that means that Google in unpatriotic.

Except that the context of her question was civil servants wearing flag pins. Unless she is a civil servant herself, I wouldn't consider her hypocritical. I do find it interesting that Stephanopolous didn't bring the issue up with McCain this past sunday while the latter was appearing on the former's program. Now *that* seems somewhat hypocritical.

Also of interest is that Hillary doesn't wear a flag pin... and no one even mentions it.

Well, of the five people referred to in this posting--the woman asking the question, the interviewer, Obama, McCain and Clinton (the last of whom was only brought in one of the comments), which of these went ON THE RECORD publicly denouncing a "need" to wear a pin?
Incidentally, Dave, are YOU seriously questioning McCain's PATRIOTISM? The man who spent a few years in a POW camp in Vietnam? Do you REALLY want to bring up McCain's patriotism like this?
You're just setting up Obama for even worse treatment.
