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.
Being the good Americans they say they are, I would think they'd want a keepsake or two from what many called the thrill of a lifetime. Even if they just recently started to love this country, wouldn't you think a flag proudly waved for the cameras (while seeing the person that made you love it) would be a good memento that could be packed into a lightweight small suitcase and placed in the den, with the "Impeach Bush" buttons and other souvenirs?
I mean think about it. Does it sound like they love America? Why would anyone equate the flag of our country with the policies of George Bush? I think it begs an even larger question here: Do they love their country more than they love Obama? I say this because I bet everyone that tossed a flag, will keep their Obama/Biden paraphernalia to show to their grandkids someday.
Cheap political stunt by the McCain camp? Maybe. But the larger picture still shows a real difference in culture and symbolism. It was not a crime for these people to toss these flags out. But this is an underlying message which will stay fresh in many Americans' minds, when they pull that lever in November.
It defines who they are, and that definition explains much about their motives and intentions. It paints a clear psychological picture of those who are attracted to this man they call "the one", and it prominently displays it for all of us to see. Most of you who read this blog see it. Hopefully, those that are sitting on the fence will see it before November.
