Constitutional dress code

CNN's Roland Martin has a novel idea in this age of hysterical punditry and simplistic reasons for voting for a particular candidate:

Since it is clear that our nation is paralyzed and so not able to close our borders, feed the homeless, develop businesses in the inner cities and save people from having their homes taken by foreclosure due to ruthless mortgage companies, all because some folks don't wear a flag lapel pin, we need to lead a national movement to demand that Congress and the states make
requiring officeholders to wear a flag lapel pin the 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

In fact, we should also make every citizen who owns a car affix a magnetic yellow ribbon to the back of their cars which proudly proclaims, "I Support Our Troops." Wherever they are.
