What Is That? A PLEDGE PIN! On Your Uniform?

Everytime the right wingers bring up the whole "Obama doesn't wear a flag pin on his lapel" garbage, I can't help but think of Doug Neidermeyer from Animal House.

Now, we have Milwaukee's own Neidermeyer, McIlheran, linking to Tom McMahon (the same guy who gave us the COEXIST issue) being all upset when there is no flag pin on Obama's lapel.

What's next? Counting how many "Support Our Troops" magnets on the back of each candidate's car to see how they will do with national defense.

But in an effort to try to keep up with the times, Whallah! proudly introduces a button that all of the members of the local right wing media can proudly pin on all of their lapels:


  1. Technically, I think Neidermeyer is "Milwaukee's own Neidermeyer."

    I didn't watch McIlheran in Incite this morning--was he wearing a flag lapel pin?

  2. Well, according to the article you link to, Mark Metcalfe would be technically referred to as Bayside's own Neidermeyer.
