Friday, I was sipping my morning coffee and listening to the national news, and I was astonished at how the brazen simplemindedness of the political news wheel has seemingly run over and smashed all essence of logical thought.
They (who are they?) are blasting Barack Obama because he would not wear a lapel pin shaped like an American flag. This is on my morning news broadcast?
Obama’s patriotism was actually questioned because he didn’t wear a lapel pin shaped like an American flag. You have got to be kidding me.
This is like questioning someone’s religious and spiritual fortitude because they don’t wear cross-shaped necklaces or pendants that ask “What would Jesus do?”
If this kind of pre-election lack of keenness isn’t enough to arouse the American public to ask, “What the heck is going on here?” I don’t know what will.
Even if Barack Obama is not first choice in your book as a presidential candidate, can we let this type of stupidness continue without question?
Maybe, it’s time I asked: How much gunk will American citizens allow the political news media to dump into their morning cups coffee, and lives?
