Stating the obvious…

One of the current Yahoo News headlines:

Obama may face grilling on patriotism

The article goes on:

Sen. Barack Obama‘s refusal to wear an American flag lapel pin along with a photo of him not putting his hand over his heart during the National Anthem led conservatives on Internet and in the media to question his patriotism.

Now Obama’s wife, Michelle, has drawn their ire, too, for saying recently that she’s really proud of her country for the first time in her adult life.

Conservative consultants say that combined, the cases could be an issue for Obama in the general election if he wins the nomination, especially as he runs against Vietnam war hero Sen. John McCain.

Please… as if up to now the republicans would never ever consider questioning the patriotism of  a democratic candidate. Saying it “could” be an issue is like saying the sun “could” rise tomorrow… of course on both accounts.

Just ask John “Purple Heart” Kerry and Max “triple amputee” Cleland. Ever since 9-11, anyone who dares questions this president’s decisions on the War on Terror is labeled as a unpatriotic, terrorist sympathizer. Of course the republican slime machine is gonna make it an issue…

What’s the next Yahoo headline? Obama may face grilling on tax-and-spend liberalism?
