Martin Bashir, MSNBC
What are they whining about?
Sarah Palin just launched a national bus tour that may or may not lead to her announcement that she’s running for president. Whether you want Sarah Palin as president or not is a non-issue. The point is that she has the American flag on the side of this bus and is getting reamed by the left. In fact, Martin Bashir, MSNBC Anchor, seems to think that this is a violation of federal law.
“Under standards of respect and etiquette, it’s made clear that the flag of the United States should never be used for any advertising purpose whatsoever. Yet that’s precisely what Sarah Palin is doing. She’s using the flag of the United States for her own financial purposes. She drapes herself in the stars and stripes and makes millions of dollars in the process. This has got nothing to do with the presidency and everything to do with filling her pockets.”
But wait a minute.. Doesn’t MSNBC use the American Flag as a back drop to their logo on occasions? Is MSNBC using the American Flag to advertise and promote its for-profit news network?? Didn’t their beloved proponent of Hope and Change drive a similar bus to promote himself as a presidential candidate in the 2007? The only reason they’re making a fuss is because it’s Sarah Palin. Why? Because she’s a strong woman who at the same time represents conservative values. That seems impossible for most liberals to even comprehend. By MSNBC’s standards it seems that only “women” like Rachel Maddow can be strong and empowered.
