assert(flag_pin != patriotism);

fox news is reporting that barrack obama has decided not to wear the flag pin. thank god someone isn’t afraid to make a decision that makes sense, and perhaps avoid blindly following the crowd. if a flag pin is how you show your patriotism, then i’d say you’re not very patriotic. i agree with obama’s decision and his reasoning:

“My attitude is that I’m less concerned about what you’re wearing on your lapel than what’s in your heart,” Obama said. “You show your patriotism by how you treat your fellow Americans, especially those who serve.”

i wish that other presidential candidates would have a spine and do their own thing. show me something fresh. show me some different method of patriotism…not just a lapel pin.  good grief!
