The Online Right as Bad Performance Art, Only With Extra Suck

Red State brings the funny:

Remember the mystery of the missing flags?

FOUND THEM:

Now granted, their candidate is internet challenged, but surely our correspondents from Red State, the premier online site for conservative activism, can not be internet challenged as well. Because perusing the mystical intertrons that elude McCain so easily, I found lots of flags. From Atrios:


You don’t have to look too closely to see what can be described as a SHIT TON of flags on display during Bill Clinton’s speech last night

From the Denver Post:


Hrmm. Flags are indeed elusive at the DNC.

I could go on and on, but you get the point, and unlike John McCain and Red State, you understand the internet. Go have fun and find your own flags. It isn’t hard.

On the other hand, this may explain why the Bush administration never found any WMD in Iraq.

    For even more pleasure I suggest venturing over to TL. Jeralyn has a post up saying all aboard Obama/Biden and making it policy that the petty snipes be kept to a minimum. Needless to say many Clinton dead-ender reader heads are exploding and Jeralyn has replaced Bill Richardson as the new Judas.

    Does anyone know where the American flags were made? As I recall about a decade back they stopped making them in the U.S. I sure would like the Dems to announce that their flags were made in America by Americans and that at least one job wasn’t sent overseas.

    But…but…John, those don’t count because they weren’t put up by the DNC! Apparently, that’s one of the rules of this game.

    Y’see, they’re obviously not smearing Democrats as a whole, but merely pointing out the lack of patriotism on the part of the DNC in particular. How you cynically impugn their motives, doesn’t that say so much more about you? Think about it!

    It’s the result of the primary. It’s like Pavlov’s dogs but they haven’t been de-programmed yet, they still drool on and piss all over themselves whenever anyone mentions Obama. Now that Pavlov is saying “Hey Obama ain’t that bad” well, the dogs are still making a mess of things.

    Good ol RedState. I stop by there for two reasons. The comedy, and to see which way the brilliant Bush conservatives are blowing. Or what. Or whom.

    Yeah, two flag diaries. One diary was the unpatriots got no flags. Now, they got flags, but they’re dissing them. Reaching much?

    The comedy was strong there in the week before the DNC convention. There was basically two types of diaries. One was EVERYTHING IS GOOD NEWS FOR MCCAIN! alternating with MORALLY DEPRAVED OBAMA WANTS TO KILL THE BABIES! They had uncovered that Obama is an infanticide fetishist.

    Don’t underestimate their intelligence. Blammer Moe is currently (or was) blogging from Hawaii where his wife took him. Given Hawaii is the most elitist spot on Earth, really the trip must be cover for a secret assignment. When the cloak of night comes, he puts on his ninja wetsuit tracking down the truth about Obama’s birth certificate. I expect breaking news anytime now.

    In 2000, after the primaries, you went back to South Carolina to talk about what you felt was a mistake you had made on the Confederate flag. Is there anything so far about this campaign that you wish you could take back or you might revisit when it’s over?

    I commented on this late last night, had too many links, and got moderated, but this is way worse than Obama’s stage. That’s for a Senate convention, too–it’s doubly presumptuous! Of course, Gilmore is white and Republican. He can’t be uppity.

    This might sound weird but I did not like seeing the flags sitting in there with the rest of the floor trash. I guess it is inevitable considering its ubiquitous nature as a prop (I liked the bar napkins observation and you can’t have a 4th of July BBQ without the Stars and Stripes on everything). I know it is just a mass produced trinket (regardless of the manufacturer’s country of origin) but considering the historic nature of this particular convention I would have hoped that people not wanting them as mementos would have disposed of them in the trash themselves instead of just dropping it on the floor. I’m not into elevating the flag into a sacred icon and was embarrassed by Hillary’s support of the flag burning amendment, but that’s just my initial reaction.

    mad the swine says:

    Yeah, that Red State thread about Obama’s classical backdrop is ridiculous.

    “Now, anybody who paid attention for more than five minutes in ancient history class can spot several defects in the facade if the intent was to make an architecturally correct Greek temple.”

    Well, um, maybe that’s because that wasn’t the intent, but don’t let me get in the way of claiming that Obama is both uppity and stupid. :P

    Anyway, it doesn’t look like any kind of temple – it’s obviously a classical Greek theatre arrangement. Look at the photo on that thread: you have Obama’s podium set up in the middle of the orchestra, the skene is that raised backdrop with the tiled facade, and the columned entrances on either side are the parodoi, where the actors would enter/exit the stage; I assume Obama is going to enter from one of them.

    The trouble with this theory is that the Greek theatre was used, of course, for tragedies (and comedies), neither of which seem really apt for the image the campaign is trying to project, so I’m inclined to write this off as a coincidence.

    … Although if Hillary is the one who announces Obama and welcomes him onto the stage, and if the lighting makes the blue of the carpet dark enough to look purple, I’ll start to worry…

    … actually, there’s a lot of fertile ground for conservative propagandists in the Obama-campaign-as-Greek-tragedy theme, given that hubris is already the centerpiece of their attack campaign. Good thing Red State’s resident classicist ended his studies with those five minutes in ancient history class :P

    They’re not just nasty; they’re really, really stupid.

    What. The. Fuck?

    I guess Bill could be personally offended at such evidence that the world, rather than hating America (for its freedoms, y’know) quite likes large proportions of the America, and instead reserves the majority of its scorn for grade-A gold-standard ignorant douchebags such as Mr. Bill Kristol.

    I think it’s a screen behind the podium. Here’s the way it looks right now:

    Aww, they changed the hue of the carpet. It barely looks like a Nazi flag anymore! Spoil-sports. Hopefully it will be a deeper red when the lights are dim.

    It just looks amazingly low-rent, too. The Dems completely transformed the Pepsi Center, to the point where it wasn’t even recognizable, while this is just a carpeted-over ice rink with a stage plunked down in it. (A black stage with a white border surrounded by red carpet, at that. How incompetent can a designer be and still have a job?)

    I think the best quote is over here:

    The same people who think government can run a national healthcare system and otherwise enhance the functioning of a multi-trillion dollar economy can’t follow basic rules about disposal of the flag.

    It’s really hard to know where to even begin, y’know? From the description of government as this no-article-required force of nature, like electricity or grouchiness, to somehow identifying J. Random Convention Attendee with said force of nature, to the brain-shattering cognitive dissonance required to believe that maintaining global hegemony through expensive violence (something which, historically, no one’s really managed) is way easier than providing basic healthcare to people (something which, currently, a whole raft of countries seem to be doing without falling apart).

    How one person can be so wrong, all at once… it simply boggles.
