Fucking creepy, or plain disgusting?

Take a good look at this photo:


Aren't we tired of the jingoistic bullshit spewed since 9/11 by the wingnuts already?  Recite the Pledge of Allegiance, Salute the Flag, mouth the words to the national anthem with your hand over your heart...all ostentatious displays of faux patriotism.

The site that carries this says:
There’s a new way to show that you’re voting for someone who represents us all. Choose one of your reasons for voting and write it on your hand, then pledge to vote. You can share a photo on Twitter and Instagram with #ForAll. Check out some of the photos—you might even recognize a few of the faces.
Nah, I know the answer: it is fucking creepy. Pledging allegiance to a politician is just as creepy as any other symbolic gesture of genuflection.
