I read a (July 8th) post on the B'ham Tea Party blog and was amazed at the pure boneheadness. Aside from the writers fantasy that no one refers to the 4th of July as Independence Day, the most revealing bit of obstinate ignorance was this: "..., our own President won’t even place his hand over his heart during the pledge ...". Obviously something the writer wants to believe in spite of the fact.
That's a smear that's been debunked for a very long time. FactCheck set the record straight a year and a half ago: http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/sliming_obama.html
