Former Senator Chafee Questions the Patriotism of those who Display the Flag

Carroll Andrew Morse

From this past weekend's 10 News Conference on WJAR-TV (NBC 10)…

Bill Rappleye: Has patriotism been corrupted? We've had a controversy whether Barack Obama is going to wear a flag-lapel pin.

Former Senator Lincoln Chafee: I think he gave a good answer. If it's in your heart, you don't need to put it on your lapel, as some kind of a gimmick.

Jim Taricani: We've got to take a break…

Chafee: It's almost suspect, those who wear their flag. What, do you have to wear it on your lapel?

Earlier in the interview, when asked who he supported in the Presidential field, Senator Chafee took his traditional stance of I'll wait 'til the race is already over, and I'm even more irrelevant than I already am, before making an endorsement. However, he did suggest that Barack Obama might be his candidate of choice. If he does make that official, the headline on the story should read "Just-another-liberal endorses another just-another-liberal".


Ian Donnis has a few more snippets from the Chafee interview available over at Not-for-Nothing.

The whole flag on the lapel thing is ridiculous. If somebody tattoo'd a flag on their forehead, then I would pay attention.

The whole lapel flag flap is brought to you by the "liberal" mainstream media.

Can you believe this moron was actually a US Senator. Chafee has got to be the most clueless bastard I've ever listened to. For instance, he talks about how Reagan met with Gorbachev and the cold war ended. Yeah, he conveniently neglects to mention the fact that Reagan called them the Evil Empire, started an arms race to put them under economically, pointed missles all over Russia, and then said, let's talk. Chafee is retarded!
