Palin And The Flag

More

Many readers have made this point about that amazing Palin beauty-queen photo here:

It wasn't Palin in red that grabbed my eye in the photo - it was the use of the American flag in the photo. It's not proper to display the flag to have it draped over a chair. Just imagine the outrage on Fox News if there was a photo of Obama and an improper display of the Stars and Stripes!


Here's an online guide to flag etiquette which Palin clearly violates. But in one of her recent calendars, she is literally draped in it like a shawl. I'm not a stickler for this kind of thing, and don't think it's that big a deal, but many are, especially Palinites. And my reader is right. If Obama had done this, it would be non-stop on Fox.
