Guess What: Lapel Pins Don't Matter

If you care about lapel pin American flags you are an idiot. Plain and simple.

Did IQs drop sharply all of the sudden? Are there really people who literally feel that wearing a lapel pin of the US flag actually matters? I thought for a while that is was just more rhetoric designed to distract the public from more important things (read: everything else), but as I read about the upcoming election I've seen one thing over and over:

"[I was] troubled by his early resistance to wearing a flag pin" (Source)

"You don't have the American flag pin on. Is that a fashion statement? "Those have been on politicians since Sept. 12, 2001." (Source)

“It just shows you he’s [Obama] not ready for the big time...”(ed: Ok, this one is just ironic in retrospect...), “Why do we wear pins? Because our country is under attack!” (Source)

I'm glad to know that a lapel pin signifies that you're ready for big-time politics (Palin should have on at all times) and that you're a true patriot (unlike all those America-hating terrorists without pins). But, if you seriously think that someone wearing/not wearing/alternating wearing and not wearing a piece of metal attached to their suit lapel actually means anything, you need to take a cold sobering look at your life and priorities. You are not capable of making an informed decision, so don't vote in this election. Or any other election. Ever.

The irony. It burns.
