What Is a Patriot?

This past Friday, while stopped at a tollbooth on my way into Chicago, I noticed a homemade sticker someone had placed on the back of the coin-catching-thing (whatever it’s called).

The sticker read:

“Patriotic Americans support the torture of Iraqi terrorist” (sic).


How do I even address such idiocy? It’s stupid on so many levels. Frightening on even more. If I get time this week I will write a full Can of Worms on the topic.
