Though we actually find the image adorable. And patriotic. And aspirational. And nostalgic, reminding us of what our pacifist younger selves would've been more wont to do with our toy soldiers (The same way our He Man men were always running errands rather than fighting Skeletor).

So thanks, FRC, for giving us hope for an America that will soon put down its "culture war" weaponry and plant a peaceful flag in a much more substantive pastry. It's a sweet vision, through both a confectionary and political lens.
