Sarah Palin violates American Flag Code–again
Posted by James McPherson on November 23, 2010
I haven’t seen Sarah Palin’s new reality show, and probably won’t. But I did see a commercial for it and noticed an odd thing. There’s a big American flag hanging from the deck of her home in the background of one shot, and the flag is backward.
Then today it occurred to me that I keep seeing her name and the flag as two terms that commonly bring people to my blog, so just for fun I thought I’d check to see what search terms had brought the most visitors since I launched this site in April 2008. Some of the results were, well, a bit disturbing.
My name was second on the list, though I suspect most of those people were looking for info about the Pulitzer Prize-winning Civil War historian, the Pulitzer Prize winning short story writer, the Civil War general (who has the coolest middle name, Birdseye), or the sculptor of demons, dragons and Batman.
At the top of the list (with 1,381 views, or 58 more than my name) is the word “flag,” which apparently takes people to my most popular post. And third, with 667 visits, is the combination phrase, “Sarah Palin bikini.” Fourth is “2012 presidential predictions,” followed by “Iraqi porn.”
Incidentally, if Palin delights liberals and appalls Republicans by choosing to mount a 2012 presidential campaign, I’m sure conservatives will be as eager to point out her patriotic shortcomings as they have been with Obama’s. Right?
