Trinket Jewelry Proves Patriotism

GOP White GuysMy husband life partner were watching Real Time with Bill Mahr with Representative Jack Kingston (R-GA) desperately trying to sound like a buffoon. During the show, Kingston questions Barack Obama’s patriotism because he doesn’t wear a US Flag lapel pin on his jacket. The audience moans in utter disbelief, and yet both of us spotted that Kingston wasn’t wearing a lapel pin either!

“Hypocrite!”

Yesterday, Congressman Kingston shows up on MSNBC’s Live with Dan Abrams who’s segment is a focus on the right-wing smear machine. “Home Skillet” immediately ponders the patriotism of someone who doesn’t wear such a lapel pin on his outer jacket, he thinks there’s cause to question one’s patriotism. This time, Dan Abrams catches him at it and points out to the Congressman that he’s not wearing one himself! Watch the sputtering here.

It might be pedantic of me to point out that in 1992, when Congressman “Home Skillet” ran for US House of Representatives in the 1st Congressional District of Georgia; he ran on the platform saying:Black Garbage Flywsd2

“I have a Democrat’s heart and a Republican’s brain. You have to have a heart, but a brain, too, to solve problems,”

These Republicans: Sometimes you want to shove your thumbs into their eyeballs and smack them upside their empty little heads. Enter DailyKos, Crooks and Liars and TPM and the rest of them to do just that:
