Waving Flags

I live in the Denver media market, so the McCain/Palin stop in Colorado Springs was the lead off story on the 5pm news tonight.

Not too long after the lead story, was the tale of the 12,000 flags thrown in the trash by the Democrats after the DNC last week.

David Harsanyi writes a column in The Denver Post and he often has some crazy ideas in them.  Today he posted something on the Post’s blog, including this:

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.

“What you see in the picture I sent you is less than half of total flags,” a Republican official emailed. “We estimate the total number to be around 12,000 small flags and one full size 3×5 flag.”

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.

What hasn’t been explained is why this worker would contact the Republican Party  but not the people who most likely overlooked them and left them behind in error.

I’m not sure if Harsanyi’s column or Fox News was the first to break this story, but apparently to them this is just further evidence of exactly how little Democrats love their country. 

I’m still waiting for arguments of substance, but I better not hold my breath.
