You would have thought that the Democrats learned something from the 1988 Presidential election. You would have thought wrong:
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.
No, I won’t question the patriotism of others. But that doesn’t change the fact that visions of 30 second spots are currently dancing in the heads of McCain campaign poobahs.
