The proposed smear:
Privately, some Republicans say they also hope to raise doubts about Obama's patriotism. McCain's TV ads stress his five years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam. One GOP operative, speaking on condition of anonymity, said strategists have proposed an ad picturing a series of Democratic politicians, all but one - Obama - wearing a U.S. flag pin.Right.... Because there's no way that could possibly backfire on McCain.
"Here's the tagline: What's he got against the American flag?" the operative said.
One wonders... is this idea coming from the same moron who sent Jack Kingston out to whinge about the flag pin issue? Because there, also, we apparently weren't supposed to notice that Jack Kingston doesn't wear a flag pin?
