OK, so I’m still on boil about this whole flag pin flap.
I’m not trying to demean George Stephanopoulos, who obviously feels passionately that one of the most pressing concerns of the day is understanding why Obama doesn’t wear a flag pin, and what that means… What does he mean, what does it mean? Does George have a flag pin? He wasn’t wearing one at the debate last night. Neither was Hillary…WHAT DO YOU THINK THAT MEANS?
Alright, so maybe I am trying to demean him and all of ABC just a little. But, seriously, if that is the most pressing issue they think we’re facing today, can I just say, huh? I’ve got bills to pay, a car to fill-up with gas I can’t afford, and my check book looks like it’s been in the hands of the Bush administration.
So, here’s what I think we should do with flag pins. (No, not that.) I think we should have all of our politicians auction them off on E-Bay, with all proceeds going to say our schools? Veterans? Affordable health care? Mortgage assistance for families? A balanced budget?
It’d be so patriotic, really. A little capitalism, self-sacrifice, and service to our country, all in one. Heck, it might even help stimulate economic growth. Besides, if we don’t do something now about this pressing issue, in four years, it’ll be all about how "mine is bigger, than yours," and we don’t want that. We really, really don’t want that.
