On Flag Pins & The Company We Keep

What’s wrong with this picture?

If your guess had to do with the fact that John McCain isn’t wearing a flag lapel pin, then you’d be correct. What I’m wondering is where’s the indignation from folks on the right about the absence of a flag lapel pin on McCain’s lapel, especially considering how some on the right have made an issue of the fact that Barack Obama has been caught without a flag pin on his lapel. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander, so if folks on the right are going to get all righteous and attack Obama’s patriotism for not wearing a flag lapel pin, then they ought to start questioning John McCain’s patriotism as well, for the sake of consistency.

There’s also been a lot of uproar recently over Barack Obama’s association with Rev. Jeremiah Wright, especially in light of Rev. Wright’s inflammatory and sometimes anti-American rhetoric, and now comes the latest attack against a supporter of Barack Obama, courtesy of the folks over at Badger Blogger:

Michelle Malkin points us to the latest outrage from one of Barack Obama’s friends, this time is isn’t the bigoted preacher, it is the unrepentant terrorist, Bill Ayers.

Ayers once again makes it clear that he has No Regrets from his time with the 1960’s terrorist group, The Weather Underground. They bombed police stations and government buildings, now he is a respected (by some) professor in Chicago, where he because a friend of Barack Obama.

The picture is very telling, isn’t it?

But Don’t Question Their Patriotism!

Now sure, there’s no question Bill Ayers has said and done some things that are well outside the mainstream, but if we’re going to attack Barack Obama for his association with Bill Ayers, then let’s attack John McCain for his association with John Hagee, noted for his rabidly anti-Catholic ideology. After all, let’s not forget that Senator McCain welcomed the endorsement of Hagee with open arms, saying, “Well I think it’s important to note that pastor John Hagee who has supported and endorsed my candidacy supports what I stand for and believe in. (John McCain, 02/29/08)

I guess what I’m hoping for is a little consistency from my friends on the right.

  1. Just another reason for Republicans to reject the RINO wimp. McCain is nothing but a kiss up to the left and the press. He is no more “republican” than obama or clinton.

    Thanks for pointing out yet another example of McCain’s lack of integrity.
