Flags of Our Fathers

You know, it never fails. Just when the Democrats have the Republicans on the ropes on the birth control thing, they remind us of just how stupid they can be:

An American flag with President Obama’s image in place of the stars flew over a Florida county’s Democrat headquarters long enough to enrage local veterans who called the altered banner “a disgrace.”

Lake County Democratic Party officials took down the flag, which flew just below a standard Old Glory on the flagpole outside headquarters in Tavares following complaints by local veterans. But merely taking it down wasn’t enough for several local veterans, who said they fought for the flag Betsy Ross made famous, not one with a politician on it.

Modifying a flag that way is, in fact, illegal, although I’ve heard of it being enforced.

I’m not going to get all harumphy about this. It crosses me as more stupid than evil. But you have to wonder what these morons were thinking. Did they think no one would notice? Did the forget that Americans kinds of like their flag? Did they forget that they live in Florida with 168 million retirees who take this stuff seriously? This is even worse than the 2008 debacle when a Democratic campaign headquarters had an image of mass murderer Che Guevara on the wall.

Honestly, who is that dumb?
