Democrats Say Republicans ‘Wrongfully Took’ Flags
You’ve probably heard that Republicans found thousands of US flags at Invesco Field, apparently being thrown away by the Democrats, and distributed them at the McCain-Palin rally in Colorado today: Republican Recycling.
But the DNCC has now released a statement that the Republicans “wrongfully took” the flags from Invesco:
American flags were proudly waved by the 75,000 people who joined Barack Obama at the Democratic Convention. John McCain should applaud that, but instead his supporters wrongfully took leftover bundles of our flags from the stadium to play out a cheap political stunt calling into question our patriotism.
I have to admit, I don’t think either side is above “cheap political stunts” when the opportunity presents itself, but I do notice that the DNCC’s statement does not deny they were throwing the flags away.
