You just can’t make this stuff up.
Just when you thought Mitt Romney and Republicans were about to settle down and discuss real issues facing this country, along comes another silly distraction which ranks right up there with the birther controversy as far as voter interest is concerned.
Naturally, it's Fox News which is spreading the word about the Obama flag logo. Some people on the right, the same people who will guarantee the Demagogue In Chief's re-election, are blasting the Obama campaign for developing this design as being sacreligious to Old Glory.
Get real, Republicans! This is the kind of distraction which cannot possibly help and most likely will hurt at least a little, by taking attention away from real issues and by providing more evidence, as if any is needed, that Republicans will complain about anything Obama does.
You probably haven't heard about this on the major networks (most people I talk too were not aware of it), but Fox is out there with it. I've heard about it on that network at least twice. Google it, and you'll most like find it on The Blaze (isn't that Glen Beck's new outlet) and other right wing web sites.
Oh, the outrage! The phony outrage!
Even as Romney falls farther and farther behind in state and nationals polls (as many as four to five points in the Real Clear and Pollster averages), certain Republicans seem determined to talk about this flag non-issue. It's almost as if the Obama campaign has secretly infiltrated Republican circles with some type of Vulcan mind blend to make GOP operatives focus on the silly side, on the ridiculous rather than the sublime.
If in fact it's Fox and the radical right making a big deal out of this inane issue, the old admonition applies--Save me from my friends more than my enemies.
To borrow a line from The Exorcist, "MAKE IT STOP! MAKE IT STOP!"
