A-Fucking-Men.  The hypocracy in criticizing someone for taking such a simple, non-violent stance for something they believe in is absurd.

 

Disagree with his opinion all you want. Say he's wrong to be sick of our government or wrong to distrust Obama, or whatever, if that's what you belive in. But acting like he has some obligation to go somewhere he doesn't want to go, or kiss an ass that he doesn't want to kiss is scary thinking, IMO.
