My motto on my other blog is, “We don’t drink the kool-aid, we pee in it.” I’m not into bashing people, not my style. I’m not nasty about politics either. But…when I see something that doesn’t sit right with me, I will call it out. Sarah Palin has certainly taken enough grief lately (sad about that), she didn’t need any more unnecessary jabs. Apologies ahead of time Sarah – I do like you and respect you as a person, politician and Blue Star Mother.
On with the post……soooo….I’m on Twitter this afternoon and see this Tweet from my left-wing friend @yatpundit
RT @charyl: I eagerly await the multiple Red State diaries screaming about her mistreatment of the flag. http://bit.ly/NL7Cv
This tweet brought me over to Balloon Juice and then to The Daily Dish which brought me to the picture that bares scrutinizing, even by me, a conservative who like Sarah.
I recently did a segment on my radio show segment (half way through) about flag etiquette with John Donovan of Arrgghhh!!!. This was not using your brain Sarah. No, it is not the worst thing in the world, but it borders on disrespectful. When you are in the public eye and everyone is waiting for you to mess up – this one screamed “d’oh.”
Yours truly would be happy to grace the cover of Runner’s World some day and would certainly be honored to have a flag hung properly in the background. And yes, I’m still envious of Sarah’s great athletic shape.
