Poster Boy

Karl Rove discussing real patriotism:

In a recent interview with GQ, former Bush adviser Karl Rove criticized Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) for “not wearing a flag lapel pin,” saying that “to a lot of ordinary people, putting that flag lapel pin on is true patriotism.”
Real patriotism = wearing a lapel pin? Unfortunately Rove is correct. Judging by the polls, I'd guess that about 30% of the public thinks that true patriotism lies in wearing a flag lapel pin. They may be driving a car that gets 2 mpg, in debt up to their eyeballs, loyal Faux watchers, bigoted as all-get-out, but they've got that pin on!

But wait. The kicker? Wait for it ........

in the interview, Rove didn't have a flag lapel pin on .....

Doesn't that just perfectly sum up Rovian politics?
