Flag Lapel Pins: Evidence of Superior Patriotism?

Right wing luminaries have jumped all over Barack Obama's answer to a question about why he doesn't wear a flag lapel pin. Media Matters has posted a series of screen captures that demonstrates that their superior patriotic fervor is so self-evident that they don't even need to wear the emblem in question. Case in point: Sean Hannity, along with recent guests Fred Thompson, Mike Huckabee and Mitt Romney, all without their magic pins.
This is what Hannity had to say on the subject on his radio program Thursday:
Why do we wear pins? Because our country was under attack.
Except of course when we don't wear pins.
