Everything That's Wrong With the World

April 17, 2008

NO I DIDN’T watch the fucking thing. But there was talk of this part on the fucking radio this morning:

NASH MCCABE (Latrobe, Pennsylvania): (From videotape.) Senator Obama, I have a question, and I want to know if you believe in the American flag. I am not questioning your patriotism, but all our servicemen, policemen and EMS wear the flag. I want to know why you don’t.

MR. GIBSON: Just to add to that, I noticed you put one on yesterday. But — you’ve talked about this before, but it comes up again and again when we talk to voters. And as you may know, it is all over the Internet. And it’s something of a theme that Senators Clinton and McCain’s advisers agree could give you a major vulnerability if you’re the candidate in November. How do you convince Democrats that this would not be a vulnerability?

SENATOR OBAMA: Well, look, I revere the American flag, and I would not be running for president if I did not revere this country. This is — I would not be standing here if it wasn’t for this country. . . .
[New York Times: Democratic Debate in Philadelphia]

Don’t tell me the candidate would have lost ground if he had instead answered: “Are you fucking kidding me?” and maybe laid the blank stare on ’em.

I mean it. Please don’t tell me.

    Didn’t John Kerry get the same kind of shit for being able to speak a foreign language last time out?

    Any old twat can wrap themselves in a flag (See Clinton and McCain).

    Or:

    “Hey buddy, my daddy died in the Korean war for that flag.” What a coincidence – my flag was made in Korea!

    A fucking genius.
