KIND OF SAD THAT HE NEEDS A SUBSTITUTE:

Obama Stops Wearing Flag Pin (AP, 10/04/07, MIKE GLOVER)

"The truth is that right after 9/11 I had a pin," Obama said. "Shortly after 9/11, particularly because as we're talking about the Iraq war, that became a substitute for I think true patriotism, which is speaking out on issues that are of importance to our national security."

Yawn. Barack who? This "story" gives other Dems cover to ditch their flags in the future, but you know Hillary sure ain't gonna stop.

Because the flag pin stabs you if you try to discuss important national security issues?

Note how conservatives are grown-up enough not to get hysterical over this slur about how genuine their patriotism is.

Used to be the Left's ideas were so small that they fit on a bumpersticker. Now it appears their ideas are so small don't even need a pin to express them.
