The Sickness Unto Election Day: Our world is in peril!

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.
