Obama and Patriotism

March 30, 2008

An interesting exchange between Larison and Will Wilkinson on the question of wether or not Obama will be seen as patriotic.

My answer has always been that for Obama to continue to wear the dog tags of Iraq veterans will trump a lapel pin every time.

And while were on the subject, when will someone point out the rightness of refusing to say the Pledge of Allegiance, a ritual invented by a utopian socialist whose totalitarian flavor is unlike anything in the world today?
