    I don't agree that this is appropriate (if it really is true), but the irony is too much to pass up.

    He hasn't had it out except for appropriate holidays for years.

    7. we were justified by a coup d'etat...
    when 5 thugs with black robes stole our country from us.


    Losing a legal election to 1 man with black skin is not equivalent.
    They can always find a reason that they can do what they condemn in others.Tells you a lot about their hypocrisy, and their lack of integrity.

    15. I am still "flying" my flag upside down
    And will until January 20, 2009. My lefty neighbor had offered to film me taking it down on that lovely day.
    Funny. No one condemns Pastiche and calls him/her an asshole.

    21. I would keep a close eye on that old boy
    Anyone that can't handles the undisputed results of an election that was won by landslide is likely not wrapped very tight.
    That's what we've been saying about you DUers for years. Glad you agree.

    I was talking to a friend today who said he wanted to do the same thing (he is not familiar with the lefty use of this idea, he's a naval history buff) and I quickly disabused him of the idea. Once I mentioned that people on Kos, DU, HuffPo, and the like did this, he quickly decided to turn his efforts toward a more productive front.

    It's sort of like looking around for a church that fits your lifestyle. There's a total lack of self honesty. A refusal to examine their own actions from any POV other than their own. Classic limo-enviro style hypocrisy.

    Anyways.

    Was this election considered a landslide victory? I think of Reagan/Mondale when I think landslide.

    Reference the electoral vote for a clue.
    At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)

    Flying the flag upside down (sign of distress) is inappropriate for the Hussien election.
    Flying it at half mast is much more apropos.

    Reference the popular vote for a better one. :p 7 million votes out of over 110 million doth not a landslide make.
