Obama 'explains

An e-mail I received, you be the judge. I'll admit, it scares the hell out of me thinking this person may very well be are next president.

I sure hope this gets around before November!

Hot on the heels of his explanation for why he no longer wears a flag pin,
presidential candidate Senator Barack Obama was forced to explain why he
doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.

According to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec.171, during
rendition of the national anthem when the flag is displayed, all present,
except those in uniform, are expected to stand at attention facing the flag
with the right hand over the heart.

'As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking
sides,' Obama said. 'There a re a lot of people in the world to whom the
American flag is a symbol of oppression. And the anthem itself conveys a
war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all? It should be
swapped for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd
Like to Teach the World to Sing.' If that were our anthem, then I might salute

WHAAAAAAAT!!!!!!!!!! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this could possibly be our
next president. I, for once, am speechless!
