You read it first on this blog about how the Tea Party Patriots took the League of Women Voters to school, and showed them how to recite their Pledge of Allegiance.
Joe Walsh's Gang of Thugs -- in Grayslake?
And what better place to teach the socialist League some manners, than at a League of Women Voters candidate forum? The Daily Herald has the 'nuff-said ...
Illinois' top League of Women Voters official said "phony patriotism" is driving criticism over a moderator's reaction when she was asked if the Pledge of Allegiance would be recited before an 8th Congressional District debate this week.
LWV official: Pledge of Allegiance demand 'phony patriotism'
Of course spontaneous recitations of the Pledge in a crowded auditorium do not happen, well, spontaneously. As reported in this blog ...
The Alleged Allegiance
the art of faking an impromptu Pledge of Allegiance takes quite a bit of planning and coordination. Sources have confirmed that decision-makers inside the Eighth Congressional District campaign of Joe Walsh had decided to treat everyone to some political theater that night. However a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance was not their first choice. In fact the Pledge was was agreed on only after ten other oaths, slogans, jingles, invocations under consideration were rejected.

Ten Rejected Alternatives to the Pledge of Allegiance
  1. The National Anthem

  2. Yes We Can

  3. The Lord's Prayer

  4. Louie Louie

  5. Tastes Great!

  6. Less Filling!

  7. Ten Hail Marys

  8. La Marseillaise (the cool way they do it in Casablanca)

  9. I Did It My Way

  10. Joe Walsh: Come on Down!

Operatives are now required to stand and say the Pledge of Allegiance:
Juro fidelidad a la bandera
de los Estados Unidos de América,
y a la república que representa
una nación bajo Dios,
indivisible cón libertad
y justicía para todós.

BB is always good for that intelligent humor first thing in the morning. Who needs coffee.
Over at the NW Herald, I saw a a succinct headline...."Incivility is not patriotism". Incivility is what the majority of the Walsh Group is! Disrespect anyone who has a different opinion. Their days are now number to single digits....

My vote was for Louie Louie - in honor of the inimitable Mr. Atsaves. Unfortunately, he lives in the 10th.

Center of Lake County? This blog is more like the center for the old soviet union. Just another progressive liberal trying to convince others that they are a moderate.
