Lynch mum on taking a federal appointment

To the surprise of no one, all-but-declared gubernatorial candidate Patrick Lynch sidestepped an answer when WPRO-AM's Buddy Cianci asked him a short time ago if he would accept an appointment as US attorney, if Barack Obama is elected president in November.

In related news, the Obama conspiracy theorists have been well represented among Cianci's callers today.

Here's a knockdown by ABC News of the rumor that Obam refuses to pledge allegiance to the American flag.

"This was not during the pledge of allegiance," Obama said of the picture taken at Senator Tom Harkin's, D-Iowa, annual steak fry and first published by Time. "A woman was singing the Star Spangled Banner when that picture was taken.

"I was taught by my grandfather that you put your hand over your heart during the pledge, but during the Star Spangled Banner, you sing!" Obama said.

ABC News has video of the event in question which can be viewed by clicking here.

Obama called the circulation of such pictures a "dirty trick" and mentioned other emails accusing him of being "a Muslim plant."
