Goat: I can't believe Rat is running for president. Pig: He's just not happy with the current candidates. For one thing, each of them wears a single flag pin in their lapel. Goat: So? Rat: So I have 137. Goat: Maybe I'll write in myself for president. Rat: Don't do it. You have no flag pins.

    Rat will make a great prez…he sees the risk(s), and seeks the bottom line. We need that. He would also abolish welfare except for the most dire cases, take SS back to dwell within it’s intended boundaries, not be raided…except for beer. Wake up folks!

    The political calls started at 8:30 this morning & I was happy to announce to the callers that they can stop calling – WE’VE ALREADY VOTED! Now, how to stop the robo calls???.Do you think Pastis is referring to the one presidential candidate who rarely wears a flag pin?

    Has anyone noticed that Romney’s and Ryan’s flag pins are twice as big as Obama’s and Biden’s. Maybe Rat has the right idea.

    “Patriotism is the final refuge of the scoundrel,” according to Samuel Johnson. Every time I see those flag lapel pins, that comes to mind, regardless of the wearer’s party. It has become a cliche, like kissing babies, to wear those pins. None of the men running for presidential and vice presidential offices served in the military, which seems one price for wearing the flag without seeming a pandering hypocrite.

    I don’t need to have a flag stuck on my clothes or glued on my car, because I am an American; I don’t have to prove it.·People who cover themselves with flags are the ones the FBI should investigate; nobody puts up that big a front unless they’re hiding something.

    I’m pretty sure Rat doesn’t even normally have a lapel. And I’d look more closely at those flags. Can’t see them in the comic, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they were Jolly Rogers.
