Well, I went to the bank this morning
And the cashier he said to me,
“If you join the Christmas club
We’ll give you ten of them flags for free.”

–John Prine, “Your Flag Decal Won’t Get You Into Heaven Anymore”

I thought everything that could have been said about Obama’s flag pin had already been said, but Sean Hannity is a trouper. “Now, I’ve got to tell you — I mean, why do we wear pins? Because our country was under attack.” 

Which might sound absurd, but every cartoon character knows that you can fight evil with jewelry.
