Have our politics become so trivial that now we are discussing whether Obama wears a flag pin? In case you're not following this debate, the answer is yes.
It's possible to agree or disagree with him (I do both), but are we so ovine that we'll decide who should be our next president based on pins? Not how to extricate ourselves from Iraq, or okay, this rant is getting pretty predictable, but pins?!
People get the officials they deserve; apparently we deserve officials that wear pins (and probably play with stickers).
