Although I feel as though this is easily just a mistake, I have to ask some basic questions;
Why were these flags ever in garbage bags? 24 bags doesn't sound like one or two people to me...
Are some posters correct in their stance that these were nothing but props? I mean, they could have gone to many a veteran cemetery, right?
Is this nasty on the republican side's part? Hell yes!
Is it any nastier than insinuating that Gov. Palin is unfit to be VP because she is a mother? Not at all.
What we can confirm, is that Sen. Obama has used his campaign for President as a resume point. He has implied that he runs his ship like Gov. Palin
did her city and state, but better, and with more results.
Flags ending up as props and thrown away (or even stored in a plastic bag on a loading dock) is a pretty loose ship, and I think it does underscore
two points about the Democratic campaign. One, there is a lack of control and no chain of responsibility. Two, there is a blatant disregard for the
sanctity of our American Symbols, as shown by Sen. Obama's "seal" and "plane redux", and now this.
Should this be exposed? Yes.
Should it be more than a 5 minute issue? No.
There is enough to say about the issues to keep the dems out of power forever. But I have been avoiding this site for two more months for a reason,
and this is one of those right here.
Can't we just get back to the issues? Oh, thats right, most of us here can't handle that.
