Blackhedd put this in an email earlier and I wanted to share. He's cool with that:
Of course, this link has been passed around a lot, but check out David Wright’s (the ABC reporter) update.
So Obama got called out on calling for Arab-speaking translators for Afghanistan. Well, his campaign responded to that, saying basically: Hey, numbnuts, there are plenty of Arabic-speakers in Afghanistan. They’re the foreign fighters who have been infiltrating the country.
To which David Wright responds: Umm, I’ve been to Afghanistan a lot. Those Arabic-speakers are shooting at us, not talking to us.
That’s the cat the Obama let out of the bag. He talks a lot about resolving the situation in Afghanistan while pulling out of Iraq, but he’s probably planning to invite the bad guys to a tea party. He’s probably too smart to say it out loud after he said that’s what he’d do with the Iranians.
About the flag pin: I’m just imagining the conversation he had with Michelle: “Barack, this isn’t about being true to yourself. That’s just sissy s**t. This is about getting POWER. You can’t do squat unless you get the big job. So suck it up and let the morons see you wearing their stupid flag. After you’re inaugurated, you can wear it upside down if you want.”
