I thought Scappleface was joking

Rep. McDermott Forgot ‘Under God’, Civil Rights Act

When I read this story, I thought Mr. Ott was joking when he wrote that Rep. Jim McDermott claimed he didn’t say “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance because he had learned the Pledge when he was young, before the word were added in 1954.

Apparently it’s true. Is it just me, or is that possibly the lamest cop-out you’ve ever heard.

I’m trusting that Scrappleface IS joking about McDermott forgetting all about the Civil Rights Act. Actually, I’m PRAYING that Scrappleface is joking about McDermott forgetting all about the Civil Rights Act.
