Perhaps Stephanopoulos will find his flag pin down where the sun don't shine

The "debate" Wednesday was so sickening that we didn't cover it at all here at DWT. We almost did... but does anyone need another diatribe on how low the corporate media has fallen? Even legitimate journalists think so! Or for someone to ask obvious questions about why Obama submits himself to a debate run by light-weight partisan adversaries disguised as impartial anchormen? Today I plan to join other Democratic activists at ABC News headquarters in Burbank (4-7pm) when they protest ABC's deplorable debate.

As MoveON pointed out yesterday, "Moderators George Stephanopolous and Charlie Gibson spent the first 50 minutes obsessed with distractions that only political insiders care about-- gaffes, polling numbers, the stale Rev. Wright story, and the old-news Bosnia story. And, channeling Karl Rove, directed a video question to Barack Obama asking if he loves the American flag or not. Seriously."

This morning, Josh Marshall did some research into the woman who asked the flag pin question and Valley Girl did her own video about the debacle.

If you're in southern California and you'd like to join the Courage Campaign's ABC protest this afternoon, all the facts are right here at ABC's Presidential Debate Disaster. No flag pin is required to attend.

After all, as James Boswell observed in his Life of Samuel Johnson, "patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel."

Flag Pin Retard was interviewed by the NYT earlier this month as a 'random voter' and brought up the flag pin issue.

She wasn't a 'random voter' when ABC chose her -- they sought her out based on her NYT comment, knowing she'd plant their pet bullshit issue.

This is the same network that broadcast that 'Path to 9/11' Bushist fantasy as a documentary. I consider them as in-the-tank as Fox.

Flag Fetishism

This nonsense about flag pins makes me wanna holler! It is the same as worshipping a golden calf, mistaking the menu for the meal, judging a book by its cover, substituting jerking off for intercourse. It pulls for the most primitive, atavistic kind of "our tribe-their tribe" group-think. It is profoundly disrespectful to the good things the flag stands for to use it in this manipulative way.
