From the incredibly inane debate in Pennsylvania:
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.
Is this supposed to be representative of the American populace? Is this the most important questions on our minds about Sen. Obama? Dear God I hope not.
What the fuck does the question even mean. Do you believe in the American Flag??? In its existence? Well, I don’t know . . . I’ve never seen one, I think it is just a myth.
And when did lapel pins become such a big deal. Nowadays you can’t say you actually support anything, unless you back it up with a lapel pin. I should start selling “life” or “oxygen” lapel pins.
So in conclusion, why would you ask such a retarded question (I in no way mean that to be disrespectful of actual retarded people, who are far superior to the woman who asked the question), and why, the question having been asked, would you include it in a debate, televised or otherwise? I hate this shit.
