"Oh say can you see..." Is Philip Malloy patriotic?

For your first blog commentary, I'd like you to reflect on the word patriotism.  In your opinion what is patriotism?  When Philip Malloy chooses to hum or sing the "Star Spangled Banner" during Ms. Narwin's homeroom is he being patriotic?  Use evidence from the text to support your claim.  If you could ask Philip to define his idea of patriotism what do you think he'd say?
