What Patriotism Isn't

Last week, I charged journalists with taking pictures of Republican National Convention attendees in possession of an ObamaMonkey or Obama-Curious George T-shirt. Today, I have an addition. I want pictures of people wearing these pins, which were sold at the Texas Republican convention last weekend, so they shouldn't be hard to spot — just look for members of the Texas delegation. If 2000 and 2004 is any guide, there will be a preponderance of cowboy hats in the vicinity. E-mail them to me. I want to start racist-shaming. Between that and the "Keep the White House... Wh!te" stamps on dollar bills in New York, I understand more and more what it is to be ashamed of my country and my fellow Americans.

@ilikenoise is a Rouge Dragon Pursuivant: I don't think anyone is necessarily saying that. I know plenty of us are from red states or the south. It can happen anywhere, it just seems to happen a bit more frequently in certain places.

Anyway - How can we find out who manufactures these? I am so down for country justice in this case, I'm almost twitching in my seat.
