So, Media Matters has yet again coughed up any response they think will help their cause of advancing the left. Trouble is, as usual, they keep missing the target.
Discussing an interview in which Sen. Barack Obama said he had stopped wearing a flag pin on his lapel during the lead-up to the Iraq war, Sean Hannity said on his radio show: “[W]hy do we wear pins? Because our country was under attack.” He continued: “And to politicize once again the war to this extent. Well, who cares about the war? Are you proud of your country?” Yet while criticizing Obama for not wearing a flag pin, Hannity himself has not worn an American flag lapel pin on a number of recent occasions.
Uh… guys? Someone displaying the flag or not, is of itself not the issue. The issue is the reasoning one uses to get there. The reasoning of it, was the whole story, in Obama’s case… and the entire objection. Address that reasoning, if you dare. I doubt you can.
