Republicans Rescue Flags from the Trash at Invesco
These waving flags made for great TV at the Democratic convention two weeks ago. 12,000 more just like them were destined for a landfill when the convention was over. David Harsanyi of the Denver Post writes:
This morning, Republicans tell me that a worker at Invesco Field in Denver saved thousands of unused flags from the Democratic National Convention that were headed for the garbage. Guerrilla campaigning. They will use these flags at their own event today in Colorado Springs with John McCain and Sarah Palin.Before McCain speaks today, veterans will haul these garbage bags filled with flags out onto the stage — with dramatic effect, no doubt — and tell the story.
I’m not sure what the DNC was supposed to do with unused hand-flags, frankly. But the Republicans are obviously questioning someone’s patriotism here.
Mighty defensive, there, David. No one questions Democrats’ patriotism as much as Democrats themselves (and yes, I realize Harsanyi is a libertarian). We don’t even have to go there. And, frankly, there were plenty of other things that could be done with them… including handing them out to Republicans!
Exit quote from Ed Morrissey: “Remember when the DNCC was supposed to be the “greenest convention ever”? How they worried about the color of the food and using organic materials in their merchandise? I guess we can see where the “green” concern ends … at red, white, and blue.”
