Gilding the Lily:
Maybe this is terribly insensitive of me, but I saw President Bush speaking on TV this afternoon, and I noticed he was wearing an American flag pin on his lapel. Isn’t that kind of like pinning an American flag pin on the American flag itself? Not that I’d pick Bush as my symbol of America, but he is, kind of. Maybe they’ll paint the White House red, white and blue, too.
Today Erin asked me, “I know this sounds bad, but when do we stop wearing these little pins? Are they ever going to be last season or something?”
She was trying to make a joke, but I know the feeling.
Yeah yeah yeah, I’m going to hell.
