    Not exactly an unbiased source, but still makes you wonder "what the hell are they thinking?"

    American Flag 'Outlawed' by Edwards

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Vacuous veep wannabe John Edwards has banned the American flag at campaign appearances, according to a left-wing weekly.

    New Times Broward Palm Beach, a monomaniacally Bush-hating yuppie tabloid in Fort Lauderdale, tells the sad story of Banjo the Democrat clown and how Edwards' handlers censored him.

    During a recent campaign appearance in West Palm by the sue-happy senator, professional clown Jack "Banjo" Williams of Delray Beach showed up early to nab himself a good spot.

    "Before the start of the speech, 70-year-old Williams worked the crowd in a star-spangled outfit that made him look like a patriotic Raggedy Andy with a top hat. Williams, a retired social worker, pulled an American flag from his clenched fist for a bit of magic. 'This flag right here doesn't belong to the Republicans,' he said. But the trick drew the ire of an Edwards camp volunteer. All signs and flags are outlawed at the event, Banjo was frostily informed," New Times reported.

    "Outlawed"? Is that what the ambulance-chasing chowderhead has in mind?

    To paraphrase an old saying, when Old Glory is outlawed, only outlaws will have Old Glory.

    If freshman Edwards has his way, it appears "this flag" won't "belong" to anybody, Democrat or Republican or independent.

    To be fair, we checked the Associated Press's photo archives of President Bush's and Vice President Dick Cheney's rallies to see if they didn't believe in freedom of expression either. The pictures, including today's appearances by Bush in The Villages, Fla., and Cheney in Xenia, Ohio, showed an abundance of flags and signs.

    newsmax isnt very unbiased but they dont make stories up either.

    Another little piece slips through the armor of the Kerry campaign. Im telling you people, this is the communist party revived. We may have destroyed the USSR, but they are damn sure trying to take our country instead.

    The only flag Kerry/Edwards and Bush/Cheney salute has a blue six-sided star in the middle of a white background. They wipe their asses on Old Glory.

    Edwards wants to be VP of this country, yet he refuses to fly the flag OF the country he wants to be VP in. Explain that, or are you too busy hugging a tree?
