What national polls repeatedly say: We don't make any goddamn sense. Our knees jerk, we give an answer, and we don't connect it to anything.
The Founders would not be impressed, we say. But we're extremely proud to be Americans.
Look, I love my country, but I'm ashamed that my country invaded Iraq without just cause, has unrepentantly tortured prisoners, has trashed its own democracy, and is led by bad, lawless men. The love I feel is why I want to make America better.
But I suppose that the idiotically specific flag pin question is the tie-breaker:
How often should a U.S. presidential candidate wear a flag pin (when dressed in other than casual clothes)?The poll is begging for the answer it wants. Why should wearing casual clothes exempt one from wearing a flag pin? I bet a real patriot like Darth Cheney has a flag pin nipple ring.
