It seems like just yesterday that Barack Obama wouldn't wear an American flag pin on his lapel because it was a "substitute" for true patriotism. Now that his pastor has been outed as a hater, all of a sudden he's playing How Many Flags Can You Make Fit On Screen. (Link fixed. Thanks MisterC.)
Think I'm cynical? You oughta read this guy, who covered Obama in the early days.
I swear, anyone who thinks "hope" and "change" are anything other than bumper sticker politics at this point has to be a horse's ass.
