There is no particular reason to allow the anti-American element in our country — by which I mean the Bush White House and its ever-dwindling rabble of dupes — to keep possession of the American flag.
For too long too many of us have been reluctant to show the flag, for fear of being mistaken for, well, assholes. Nothing activates a bullshit detector faster than a flag pin, oversized for TV, in a presidential lapel. Is Bush afraid of being mistaken for the president of Albania, or Armenia? (If only…)
But we have no reason to be reluctant anymore. The November elections gave us reason to be proud of our country again, so feel free to put your flag out there in a lapel that deserves it. Mine is below.
