The nice folks at portside.org, who sent along this bit from the Huffington Post, apparently view a socialist pedigree as a plus for the pledge. After all, what could go wrong when combining nationalism and socialism?
Personally, I like the fact that pledge is self-denouncing. A real "land of the free" would not require school children to recite pledges to a symbol of the state.
Who was my favorite student this term?
