This is just embarrassing. Denver Post columnist (and reason contributor) David Harsanyi reports that the McCain campaign is making political hay out of unused miniature American flags:

This morning, Republicans tell me that a worker at Invesco Field in Denver saved thousands of unused flags from the Democratic National Convention that were headed for the garbage. Guerrilla campaigning. They will use these flags at their own event today in Colorado Springs with John McCain and Sarah Palin.

Before McCain speaks today, veterans will haul these garbage bags filled with flags out onto the stage - with dramatic effect, no doubt - and tell the story.

"What you see in the picture I sent you is less than half of total flags," a Republican official emailed. "We estimate the total number to be around 12,000 small flags and one full size 3×5 flag."

I'm not sure what the DNC was supposed to do with unused hand-flags, frankly. But the Republicans are obviously questioning someone's patriotism here.

Yes they are. And they should be ashamed of themselves for engaging in such a pathetic stunt. I have previously argued that the "questioning our patriotism" meme was, for the most part, a straw man. Sure, some crackpot bloggers had done just that, as had vile "journalists" like Jerome Corsi, but McCain seemed to avoid such tactics. But things are getting tight, November is just around the corner, and the McCain campaign seems to be indulging in the most pitiful jingoism since Kang and Kodos ran for President.

One could easily question who's making a "hubbub" about it.

Not quite.

"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 a cheap political stunt calling into question our patriotism. On the same day he agrees to join Barack Obama at Ground Zero on September 11, John McCain attacks the patriotism of Obama supporters who so proudly waved the American flag at our historic event in Denver just days ago."

That's right.

McCain Republican operatives STOLE flags. That's right. Not 'rescued.'

STOLE.

All of the flags at Invesco were picked up and put in bags and into storage, along with the unused flags and campaign signs. The flags were going to be donated, and the signs were going to be sent out to be used elsewhere

But, that didn't stop the McCain Republicans from attempting to lie about the patriotism of Obama supporters.

They did so gleefully. Because they have no shame, no decency, no honor.

John McCain was a hero at one point. Now, he's just another lying Republican criminal in the line of Nixon, Bush, and Cheney.

Jugo, it is the win at any cost playbook of Karl Rove and the late Lee Atwater.

What if I wiped up aborted fetuses with the flag?

Maybe made a nice tea out of it all?
