Drudge Report is linking to a story that part of the trash generated by the Democrat National convention in Denver is over 12,000 unused American Flags, which were saved from being tossed out as garbage by a worker.
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. - Denver Post
How sad that none of the Democrats thought of taking the flags to give away to delegates, or to all those people they got to fill Invesco Field to listen to Obama's speech or even take along to give away on the road. Even I would love to get a flag from the 'Great One'. Not only that but it really would have neutralized the whole Obama-flag pin issue. At the very least a Democrat could have taken them and sold them on eBay. But I guess none of those Democrats have any sort of entrepreneurial spirit.
Instead the flags are going to be used at a McCain/Palin campaign event. Does that count as a campaign contribution? Either way, thanks DNC! (And shame on you at the same time!) Guess lots of supports will be walking away with some nice new flags.
I'll take 17. Too bad I'm stuck in Virginia getting rained on.
Seems that this is just the latest in an ongoing flag issue that REDSTATE has been following. See their posts: 'New Game: Where's the Flag' as they fail to find any US flags that the DNC might have put up for their convention. And then 'Mystery Solved' as they discover US Flags tossed in with regular convention garbage.
