Flags Found In Trash Called Political Stunt By Obama Campaign

Just like unborn babies, Democrats throw flags in the trash.

McCain Camp ‘Rescues’ Flags From Obama Rally
McCain supporters said the flags were discovered by a vendor at Denver’s Invesco Field after the conclusion of the Democratic National Convention. The vendor supposedly found trash bags full of flags in and near garbage bins, and turned them over to the McCain campaign.

Boy Scouts were sorting through 84 bags of flags in Colorado on Saturday, before a McCain supporter had veterans distribute them to the audience.

Damon Jones, spokesman for the Democratic National Convention Committee, released a statement saying McCain should applaud the fact that thousands of American flags were “proudly waved” at their convention.

“But instead his supporters wrongfully took leftover bundles of our flags from the stadium to play out a cheap political stunt calling into question our patriotism,” he said.

Yes, we all should applaud the fact that Obama supporters attempted to show patriotism. That is a start. A poor one, but a start, none the less. And mean old McCain people just had to bring up the flag/trash thing. Some of those mean old people brought up the law, ethics and patriotism in an apparent attempt to show that Democrats displayed none of them.

Flags in the trash. Used once. For a couple of seconds. For TV. And then, with out honor, dumped in and near the trash. And Republicans had the bad taste to point this out. Too soon.

Talk about spoiling a special moment. At least it wasn't another abortion.
