I can't watch the video, but I'm guessing from the responses here that this was just another sensationalist media story?

I am fairly certain that Sarah Palin isn't even aware that it is the American flag.

The big problem with his argument...it wasn't the flag. Her bus has two red and white stripes running down the bottom. It doesn't have the stars and it doesn't have the correct number of stripes. It is not the American flag. It is an artistic representation that is designed to invoke thoughts of the flag, but that isn't the same as using the flag as an advertisement.

So because she has stripes similar to those seen on the flag she's supposedly somehow violating the law?

I have stated endlessly that both Republicans Democrats have been in serious violation of the US Flag Code for decades. US Flag Code is and has been law for well over 60 years.

Yes she did, in the exact same way that every 4th of July barbecue I've ever been to has breached federal law.

Who is dumber, the guy who thought it was worth making a big deal about t his on his show, or the guy making a big deal that some one else made a big deal about it. I think it is about tied. Always knew The Blaze was pretty stupid, had never heard of the guy on MSNBC before, but he seems pretty stupid too.

What you were seeing was the sound of hatred and desperation.

If any real American gets the Republican nomination (that means not Romney, not Guiliani, not some other RINO), the Left's God is a guaranteed one-termer.

And Joe the Plumber would win over Obama today, if he got the nomination.

(Joe the Plumber wouldn't have given the Queen of England and iPod.)

Well, of course.

He's on MSNBC.

People that aren't stupid don't work for a station at the bottom of the ratings.

Uhm, no offense, but you really shouldn't be casting that stone if you believe this is the American flag. :2razz:




Oh, and to the OP, always make your poll results public, that way we would know which two dolts voted for the first option.
