Obama and Empty Symbols

If you haven’t heard (unlikely) Senator Obama doesn’t wear a flag pin because he believes it is a false showing of patriotism. “In an interview with KCRG-TV in Cedar Rapids, he said such symbols “became a substitute for, I think, true patriotism.” He added: “I decided I won’t wear that pin on my chest. Instead, I’m going to try to tell the American people what I believe, what will make this country great, and hopefully that will be a testimony to my patriotism.”
