The Dillard Doctrine

Urban Conservative Commentary on Politics & Life

Is the US in Distress?

Apparently so, judging from this:

Those, my friends, are credentials to the Democratic National Convention. And, yes, the flag is upside down.

Intentional? Not so, says the Obama campaign and the DNC:

Matt Chandler with the Obama campaign says the flag is not upside down. He says it is a stylized flag designed to blend the stars on Senator Obama’s shirt with the flag blowing in the wind.

Natalie Wyeth with the Democratic National Convention Committee sent 9NEWS the following statement Saturday night: “The DNCC community credentials incorporate patriotic design elements. They do not depict an actual American flag. The DNCC has full and complete respect for the flag and all rules of display.”

Yeah, but……um…..if that’s the case, why not show a full picture of Obama standing up, with the starred shirt to the right, and the stripes in the background? Besides, I’m no fashionista, but who in their right mind wears a shirt out in public-except for on the Fourth of July-that’s a replica of the starred section of the flag? It’s either bad fashion…..or obvious pandering.

Someone, somewhere should’ve known that, with all the questioning over Obama’s patriotism, an image like this would be heavily scrutinized. Best believe that if the GOP was having their convention in Texas and put an oil rig on their credentials, liberals would be beyond pissed (“see? They’re tied to the oil companies!!!”)

Course, standard liberal doctrine has this country going directly to hell anyway. Maybe the DNC is just giving insight into what they really think.

Then again, maybe I’m just another one of the whacko repugnik wingnuts getting my panties bunched over nothing.
