Dean’s Flag

Dean’s rally stage has a heeeeeeuuuuge American flag set up as the backdrop. The comparison to Patton is unavoidable, at least so it seems since I just heard Brit Hume make it just as I was thinking it. I’ve got no problem with the flag backdrop, but you’d think Dean wouldn’t be too eager to draw comparisons between himself and Patton — a man who, fairly or not, acquired a reputation of not having a calm enough temperment to be a wartime general leading an armored invasion in an all out battle for the future of Western civilization.
