Note: This piece first appeared on the Misfit Politics blog. But I still wrote it, so it’s going here too.
So this happened:
Beautiful, isn’t it? Gaze in marvel at the majesty that is Teh Won. Kneel, if you wish. Go on, no one will judge you. In fact, Chris Matthews is, as we speak, commissioning a pair of boxers based on this design, just so he can keep the thrills a-comin’.
(Kinda gives that “O” design a whole new meaning, doesn’t it?)
Yes, this piece of, er, work was on display above Florida’s Lake County Democratic Party headquarters for “several months,” until a cranky cadre of creaky old war veterans raised a stink and demanded it be taken down.
Now, this is just plain ridiculous: What would war veterans know about flag etiquette? And besides, local Democratic Party chairwoman Nancy Hurlbert said that they were just trying to show pride in our President! There is absolutely nothing whatsoever that is creepy about this flag!
Uh, ignore that.
Besides, the stars on the U.S. flag are only symbolic of the fact that We The People, as represented by the fifty states, are the true sovereign power of this nation — it’s not like they’re important! Or that putting a visage in their place could be construed as a usurpation of….
Oh, wait! Ms. Hurlbert knows the answer!
Still, because it went unnoticed for so long, she said she has a feeling it’s “not about the flag.”
“It leads me to believe that it’s not about the flag,” she told Fox News. “Certain elements cannot accept Barack Obama as president.”
That’s it! It’s RACISMS!!! Cause, you know, veterans hate blue men! Don’t you remember Avatar? For heavens sake, people, WE HAVE IT ON FILM!
Well! I’m glad we cleared that up! And so, now, we can return to basking in the glory of our Dear Leader, genuflecting in the glow of his…of his…
GAAAAHHHHHH!!!! FASCISM!!!!!! HOW DARE YOU?!?!?!1?
