Falling Flags (Truly symbolic)
ABC News ^ | 11/12/07 | The Notes

Posted on 11/12/2007 7:30:46 AM PST by teddyballgame

Then, on Sunday, everything started falling down around her.

After a very Presidential-esque news conference - Clinton turned around to leave the reporters and their peppering questions. A staffer swooped open a curtain, and chaos ensued. Four large American flags came crashing in front of Senator Clinton as she headed for the door. In a controlled panic, the staffers and the Senator attempted to catch the flags before they fell to the ground.

"I think the bases are not weighted enough." Clinton said as she propped flags back up.

You may be on to something here.

Notice, Clinton blames the bases of the flag stands. I guess it was a Vast Right Wing Conspiracy trick; the bases’ weighting material was removed and replaced with Styrofoam. Yeah, that’s it.

Evidently our fallen soldiers know what this witch really thinks of the men and women in uniform. They are trying to tell us that the country will be in danger with her as president.

"I think the bases are not weighted enough." Clinton said as she propped flags back up.

I think it was somehow staged, for a photo op of her "lifting the fallen flag". Just like ol' Bill walking the beaches of Normandy, "finding a pile of stones by the surf, and arranging them into a cross.

“Spoken like one with experience in weighted bases.”

Aside from the possibility of Veterans’ opining from the grave, vibrations from the impact of her thuderous cankles do give an Earthly explaination.

I Am Your Flag

I am your Flag
I was born on June 14th, 1777.

I am more than just cloth shaped into a design.
I am the refuge of the World’s oppressed people.
I am the silent sentinel of Freedom.
I am the emblem of the greatest nation on earth.

I am the inspiration for which American
Patriots gave their lives and fortunes.
I have led your sons into battle from Valley Forge
to the bloody swamps of Viet Nam.
I walk in silence with each of your Honored Dead,
to their final resting place beneath the
silent White Crosses, row upon row.

I have flown through Peace and War, Strife and
Prosperity, and amidst it all I have been respected.
My Red Stripes . . . symbolize the blood spilled
in defense of this glorious nation.
My White Stripes . . . signify the burning
tears shed by Americans who lost their sons.

My Blue Field. . . is indicative of God’s
heaven under which I fly.
My Stars . . . clustered together, unify
50 States as one, for God and Country.
“Old Glory” is my nickname,
and proudly I wave on high.

Honor me, respect me, defend me with
your lives and your fortunes.
Never let my enemies tear me down from my
lofty position, lest I never return.

Keep alight the fires of patriotism, strive
earnestly for the spirit of democracy.
Worship Eternal God and keep His commandments,
and I shall remain the bulwark of peace
and freedom for all mankind.

I am your Flag.

That’s because everyone on the planet is trying to open them right now. Give it time. Soon, the image will be as familiar as Michael Dukakis bouncing around in the tank like a little boy wearing an over sized helmet.

Either the ABC server has crashed or her handlers have had it removed. Poor Gerald Ford was laughed at and called a buffoon for far less. I wonder how the smartest woman in the world will spin this.

Yup. Looks like video has been yanked. The fact that we’re getting the “Service Unavailable” page proves that the server hasn’t crashed. Sigh....they pulled it. Would have been nice to see.

She was’nt near the flags when it happened. Some staffer pulled a curtain open and knocked one into the other two on that side. She then walks over to hold onto one while they straighten it out. Really nothing to see.
