The right gets the vapors over lack of flags at DNC.

Surely there were some flags at the convention yesterday, right?

All the great speeches and all I'm hearing about is the lack of jingoistic display on the floor.

Anyone have any pictures of people with flags there?

The right might as well change their flag to the Russian flag like the Putinites they are.

It seems like they are debunking crap by the truckload this year. I can only imagine how stupid and gullible they think the typical American is.

It's a very, very serious ailment, often brought about by clutching ones pearls too tightly.

Sadly, it's one of those ailments that evil Obamacare refuses to cover. That should upset every American.

Or maybe Russian mobsters, possibly committing treason with a foreign power and the baggers are clutching their pearls over flags at the dem convention?

This is one reason why I hate republicans. Their BS is all symbolism with nothing behind it.

FU republicans!
