Skip to comments.Democrats Trash 12,000 Flags, Republicans Recycle

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.
Im not sure what the DNC was supposed to do with unused hand-flags, frankly. But the Republicans are obviously questioning someones patriotism here

IIRC, the ‘pubc are giving them all to veterans organizations in Minn.
Just shows that we can be Green, Red, White and Blue!
Well, if the flags had a hammer-and-sickle or a Islamic crescent on them, they would have been kept by the America-hater commies.....
I bet the DNC saved the grecian columns though.
That’s gonna leave a mark.
Great idea! Rub the Dems’ nose in it!
Could it be that the conservatives/pubbies and people in general are finally standing up and exposing the lefties for what they really are??????????????????????

Carl Cameron on Fox News just reported this about 20 minutes ago. He said that there were dozens of trashbags that were rescued and being passed out by a Boy Scout troop. So I’m not sure if it is Vets or Scouts or a combo of both that are passing them out. He was on sight. Said he was stuck in traffic for 45 minutes 4 hours BEFORE the event. Said the line of traffic is still over 4 miles long at the 3 hour point. The line of people out of their cars waiting to get into the hanger is about a mile long.
Oh, and by the way, Carl Cameron said that the story was still “developing”.
Didn't President Bush get ridiculed for using the term "Grecian"? (Although it did turn out that 'Grecian' was a proper term)
Although, the flag waving by the delegates on the field at the stadium during the Obama speech seemed a little creepy and weird to me. It came across as phony, and that's worse than being 'merely' unpatriotic.
