Why The DNC Waves The Flag

The Denver Post reports that the DNC has trashed over 10,000 American flags used in their recent convention.

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.

“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.

The leaders and organizers of the Democratic National Party wave the American flag only as long as it suits them. Once they have assured themselves that they have assuaged suspicions about their patriotism, they treat the flags just like they treat aborted babies who are born alive...

Why didn't the convention delegates take the flags home as souvenirs?
