This is petty, but hey, most things about American politics are petty. We all know about the big stink that occurred because Obama wasn't wearing a flag lapel pin. Sean Hannity even said, “Why do we wear pins? Because our country is under attack!”
So when I get home tonight from work my wife already has the debate on. I don't particularly like debates because I don't find that much substantial comes out of them. But I sit down and watch for a bit anyways. What's the first thing I notice? Obama is wearing a flag lapel pin and McCain isn't. Since conservatives are so well known for their consistency, I can't wait to hear what they have to say about McCain's lack of patriotism.
flag, lapel, pin
