OH, THOSE 43RD DISTRICT DEMOCRATS:
At the mere mention of doing the pledge there were groans and boos. Then, when the district chair put the idea of doing the Pledge of Allegiance up to a vote, it was overwhelmingly voted down. One might more accurately say the idea of pledging allegiance to the flag (of which there was only one in the room, by the way, on some delegate’s hat) was shouted down.
On the other hand there was this touching display of party loyalty, from Hillary's representative: “Should Obama get the nomination I will become a massive Barack Hussein Obama supporter.” You'll recognize his name.
