Interesting point Martin Bashir makes here:
But what is not true is that the flag of the United States can be used to promote a product, which clearly leaves the consumer with the impression that the product is endorsed by the Federal government. Some morons on the right seem to skate right past this rather important fact on their way to bashing Bashir for a double standard.
Palin has not announced her candidacy, but has invited the press along on her tour. She has a movie coming out in the next few weeks. She is a, and I'll use the term loosely, "popular" author who can reasonably expect a bump in book sales from the goobers and yahoos that she will encounter in her flag-draped "coffin on wheels."
I coin that, because as she displays her flag, she dishonors and disrespects the men and women who so valiantly died for her to be able to write her books and whine her little whines and allows asshats like Fitzsimmons to waste perfectly good tube socks fapping to photos of her in tight leather pants. If she's going to disrespect dead soldiers on Memorial Day no less, then she ought to be called on it, as Bashir did.
So I suggest l'il Alex pick up a gun, stand a post, and then tell me how much he likes seeing Sarah Palin disrespecting his comrades in arms who died next to him.
