I don’t trust people who wear their religion or patriotism on their sleeve (or lapel)

The Barack Obama American flag lapel crisis would be funny, if it wasn’t so sad. Talk about a tempest inBrk
a teapot. The ‘holier than thou’ Right Wing is truly making a mountain out of the proverbial molehill with this non-event.

I’ve seen too many examples of too many chest thumpers who talk the talk but don’t walk the walk. Just think of all the outspoken Evangelical Christian types who’ve decried homosexuality only to have gotten caught in flagrante delicto with a same sex partner. The same goes for the American flag wavers who are freaking out about Obama’s flag-free lapel.

Give me a break. Patriotism has nothing to do with wearing lapels and everything to do with how one feels and acts.

I’m not an Obama fan, but I support his right to wear a lapel (or not). This issue is a non-issue and says more about the image and reputation of the attackers than the attackee.
