Why Do Obama and the Mainstream Media Hate America?
The latest Obama-related flag flap (pun intended.... heh) is that Obama apparently failed to place his hand over his heart during a rendition of the National Anthem, because he hates America. Worse still, is that despite there being no more important news in the world, the mainstream media failed to drop its coverage of the clusterfuck in Iraq, the looming war with Iran, and the failure of the so-called War on Terror to cover 'Anthemgate!' Good lord!
This summer, I was a participant in a 4th of July parade, in full Jedi costume, and at the post-parade picnic they played the National Anthem. I wasn't really sure what to do... after all, in character, my allegiance is to the Republic, not to the US... :^)
Worrying about that is about as stupid as worrying about whether Obama did or did not put his freakin' hand over his heart. Jeesh. It's a dumb PR move, certainly, but doesn't really speak to the man's patriotism one way or the other, and if you can't see that, then I have some land on Tatooine to sell you...
