How do you say 'flop' in Teabag?
Today, what was hyped by Fox News and other right-wing propaganda mills as the "Million Vet March", turned out to be a giant bust. At best, maybe a few hundred people showed up outside the Whitehouse and - get this - waved a giant Confederate flag.
The tweetosphere is abuzz right now about how disgusting and deplorable it was to wave such a sign in front of the home of an African American family. And that's true. But on the bright side, such a hateful and racist expression is probably a big part of why this supposedly major Republican rally is getting almost no coverage in the mainstream media. Of course, it could be the embarassingly low turnout that doomed the event for the press. But, my guess is, ol' Stars & Bars was the final nail in the coffin of this epic fail.
