Missile Defense Agency goes Hopey-Changey

I know we have a lot of fun back and forth banter on 'ole Sal's front porch. I like disagreement - I like creative friction without conflict - but for an exceptional moment I want to be binary.

Can we agree that there is at least 1 thing that is 100% right and 100% wrong for the armed forces of a Representative Republic; the armed forces should never adopt in whole or in an obviously derivative manner any symbol of a domestic political party, organization, or movement?

Can we at least find common ground there?

Maybe I do need an AFDB.

For review I offer to you the old "logo" for the Missile Defense Agency.

Standard issue for a US military heraldry perspective.

Now for the new logo.

Bounce that off of the Obama for President logo:
In another binary moment: the person who approved this is either colossally ignorant and inept, or they are trying to curry favor with a political movement via a ".mil" domain.

In either case, that individual needs to immediately and publicly explain himself, resign, and/or be fired.

Full stop

I know that seems harsh, even for me - but I do not care if you have the Obama for President logo tattooed on the tip of your John Thomas; you have to agree that the US military should not be even close to this. This habit has a
very bad history and of all nations, ours should be the last where a military adjusts its heraldic items to reflect something involving political parties.

Please, tell me I am wrong here.
