You just can’t make this shit up. Via Windy City Watch:
llinois Republicans are a patriotic bunch.
They start their meetings with a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, the nation’s unofficial loyalty oath. And so it was last week when Republican Party leaders met at a Springfield hotel prior to attending Republican Day at the Illinois State Fair.
Republican county chairmen (party leaders, not county board leaders) held a meeting and prepared to recite the pledge. Oops. There was no flag in the room for them to face while reciting. What to do? Why, call on a fellow named Gene to come to the rescue. Gene was wearing a shirt decked out in an American flag pattern.
He came forward, and the group of assembled Republicans pledged allegiance to his shirt.
This got me thinking about all the anti-Obama rhetoric I’ve been hearing lately from the Republicans and claims that our county is becoming socialistcommunistfascistnazi and I started wondering at which point Republican wingnuts, probably led by Minnesota Representative Michelle Bachman and Texas governor Rick Perry, will stop reciting the Pledge. With all the blather about secession and revolution coming from these two idiots, can’t see them taking an oath of allegiance for too much longer, eh?
I’m just sayin’…
