somewhere between baffled and bemused

I just found out what the Betsy Ross Teabag Flag with the “II” in the middle means:

Second American Revolution:

Our Betsy Ross flag with a Roman numeral “II” in the center of the 13 stars symbolizes the Second American Revolution on its surface, but at a deeper level it symbolizes the “House of Liberty.” You see, there were “two” times “13” came together to change the course of all mankind . . . the “Last Supper” where a faith began with a “Foundation of Love,” and secondly, when 13 colonies came together and wrote a Constitution “Framed in Freedom.” With a “Foundation of Love, framed in Freedom” the “House of Liberty” Ronald Reagan often spoke of, was built, and this house can not go into foreclosure!”

On one level it’s a relief, since I thought they advocating violence (remember Sarah Palin’s exhortation to RELOAD!).  On the other hand, this is somehow even more whacked out. Is the idea Obama is somehow not Christian?  Please, not that again…

  1. Of course, Obama is the most accomplished kind of Christian — the kind who had to sort of grind into it to find it, rather than have it jammed up his pie-hole.

    This “our flag” business sounds dangerously sectarian. I figure most of the “rank-and-file” will eventually get bored before crossing the River Styx into the delusional territory of the leaders who claim this is a leaderless movement but want nothing more than to lead it. A fine thread separates exhortation from exploitation. Something has to give.

    Perhaps that thread will be discovered someday in the buttock region of Michele Bachmann’s latest power-skirt. She does flatter pantaloon and power-skirt. And they her. This love-coupling will continue in November, I’m afraid. And I’m glad all over. But I don’t live in her district.
