    That one's iffy. It actually shows the flag as being flown from a staff (something that Palin's doesn't).

    Disrespectful, because it violates flag code?
    According to the flag code, yes.

    Disrespectful, because it violates flag code?
    Same as the first one.

    Disrespectful, because it violates flag code?
    I don't see where there is a violation of flag code there.

    Do YOU want to tell the American soldiers in this picture they are being disrespectful of thier flag, because this mural violates flag code?
    Even if there is a violation of flag code in that picture, it certainly was not done by the soldiers in the picture. It would have been whoever edited the photo.

    for having a mind.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Honestly, Tucker's the first person I would think would be willing to say this is a dumb issue to get hung up on, even if it's Sarah Palin.

    I don't really care if it is Palin or Obama. Overall, it is a dumb issue, but its the overuse of flag draping for self promotion that makes it an issue at all. I have much more of a problem with that.

    I just do not get the entire need to show respect or the worship by proxy thing. The flag is just a piece of material with a pattern on it. The nation is an integral part of my being and that of those I care for and share my national identity with. I have a ton of pride and respect for this nation, this is tangible and real.

    I dunno I just do not understand the magnitude of attachment people have towards symbolism, it just seems almost like a primitive superstitious thing to me.
