by Sara K. Smith

Double fail times negative 18 million whore diamonds for B. Hussein NO0bama and his upside-down Satanist American flag, which is an evil hologram from space. [9 News]

Who is the asshat that screwed that simple shit up.

MARCdMan August 19, 2008 at 11:06 am

Somebody’s either very clever, subtly inserting a distress signal, or stupid, a la McCain’s media gremlins using Russian fighter jets in his campaign graphics. Either way, I’m here for the heathen drug-induced orgy!!!

EnBuenOra August 19, 2008 at 11:07 am

Have you ever considered that maybe it’s you holding it wrong? How do you liberal punks know you’re not all upside down? Hmmm?

sarcasticusername August 19, 2008 at 11:08 am

proof he’s ready to be president, bush doesn’t know which way the flag goes either.

crookedE August 19, 2008 at 11:08 am

I guess they will just have to burn them all and do a re-print.

Darehead August 19, 2008 at 11:09 am

What is with you puritan, patriotic Americans??

The Japanese always hang their flag upside down and no one goes all bonkers over it. Lighten up!

Gopherit v2.0 August 19, 2008 at 11:10 am

[re=62860]columnv[/re]: A democratic strategist……asshat is part of the job description.

And, really, who doesn’t want to fly their flag upside down these days? I’ve been pretty goddamn distressed the last 8 years.

Tawmn August 19, 2008 at 11:11 am

a distress signal to rally the Hilltards?

columnv August 19, 2008 at 11:15 am

[re=62873]Gopherit v2.0[/re]: agreed about the last 8 years and about dem strategist job descriptions.

SuperRounder August 19, 2008 at 11:15 am

[re=62864]AngryBlakGuy[/re]: here comes that Hannity hard on you were talking about.

Makeithurt August 19, 2008 at 11:16 am

Finally, something newsworthy and important. Thank God the media will have something to talk about and drill into us.

Monsieur Grumpe August 19, 2008 at 11:18 am

mmmmmmmmmmm Holygrams.

PrairiePossum August 19, 2008 at 11:20 am

Maybe Barry is dyslexic.

AngryBlakGuy August 19, 2008 at 11:21 am

…well its still better than the flag that WALNUTS! is using for his passes!

Botswana Meat Commission FC August 19, 2008 at 11:26 am

This is what happens when Denver runs out of Clif bars and moisture-wicking lycra underwear.

itgetter August 19, 2008 at 11:30 am

From article: “Matt Chandler with the Obama campaign says the flag is not upside down. He says it is a stylized flag designed to blend the stars on Senator Obama’s shirt with the flag blowing in the wind.”

WHAT? What kind of shirt is Hopey
planning to wear?

freakishlystrong August 19, 2008 at 11:30 am

[re=62883]Monsieur Grumpe[/re]: “Hopeygrams”!

ProgHead777 August 19, 2008 at 11:37 am

Hmmm, which is more unpatriotic/offensive: a maybe sort of upside down flag that’s not really a flag on some holographic field pass thingy or wiping your ass with the goddamn U.S. Constitution on a daily basis for the past seven and a half years (at LEAST)?

JadedDIssonance August 19, 2008 at 11:41 am

How many Hopeygrams will be up on eBay in a week?
I’ll bet the avg price will be: $50 a hope.

irisheyes August 19, 2008 at 11:42 am

[re=62898]ProgHead777[/re]: Oh you. Reason and thought no longer apply. We’re through the looking glass here people. I mean Pres. Dickwad is looking to start WWIII; people are fat, embittered, whiners; the other guy running can’t put together a coherent sentence nevermind a policy; so we’d all better GET ENRAGED OVER THE FLAG TICKET!!!!! It’s time well spent, I think.

cantabrigia August 19, 2008 at 11:42 am

If it’s hanging from a lanyard through that there hole on top, and you were to flip it up to look at it, the flag would be right side up to the viewer. Duh.

Larry McAwful August 19, 2008 at 11:48 am

This will raise yet another question about which reasonable people can disagree: do the Democrats hate America or don’t they? Very important issue here, and we should start addressing this right away.

Clearly it’s reasonable to surmise that the political party that has more members than any other American political party, and that enjoys a majority of governor’s offices and controls both houses of our bicameral legislature, hates the country it runs.

I hope we spend the rest of the election discussing this very important point. It will surely serve us all very well.

Strictly for the Tardcore August 19, 2008 at 11:52 am

Yeah, well, my patriotism has been slowly extinguished over the last eight years, so I could give a shit about whether the flag upside down, rightside up, or ‘sploded.

Beef Supreme August 19, 2008 at 11:53 am

If you hold Obummer’s hologram just at the right angle, you can see a crescent moon.

thefrontpage August 19, 2008 at 11:56 am

Since when does a major political party issue a “credential” with an upsidedown flag on it?

That’s just stupid–incredibly, astoundingly, numbingly, ridiculously STUPID.

pondscum August 19, 2008 at 12:02 pm

Didn’t the list say we couldn’t bring drugs? So, I’m assuming they are selling the drugs inside the stadium? Who cares about the damn flag. I want to know about the drug orgy!

Oscar Folsom Cleveland August 19, 2008 at 12:04 pm

From the article: “After waiting to find out, residents walked under their umbrellas into a damp parking garage to receive their credentials for Barack Obama’s nomination acceptance speech.”

Not a good omen, having to slog into a rat-infested soggy underground bunker in order to pick up the Hopeygram tickets….inauspicious!!

As for the “upside down” flag credentials thingie, well, the Demopublicans are so used to looking down, they figured the way to see their flag is by looking in that direction.

Sadly, it is good Merkins like Kathleen Portalksi of Phoenix AZ and loyal but homosexual Viet-Namese immigrants who know that the future is bright, and the flag shines in that city on the hill – they’re looking up and into the face of….God? (And she, too, is a hologram.)

illnoise August 19, 2008 at 12:04 pm

I don’t see a hologram. Does the flag move when you wiggle it? That’s a lenticular, not a hologram.

MargeSimpsonsBlackFriend August 19, 2008 at 12:05 pm

[re=62909]Larry McAwful[/re]: Of course they hate America. Contrast that with the Republicans who love America, but hate actual Americans.

Darehead August 19, 2008 at 12:08 pm

MSNBC says he is the frontrunner:
Sen. Joe Biden of Deleware, (sic) — spelling change we can believe in?

Cape Clod August 19, 2008 at 12:12 pm

I thought we were all Georgians now, so who gives a crap?

Sara in the West August 19, 2008 at 12:13 pm

Really, these “credentials” are just our marching orders for those of us who hate America to have a big party before we go out and destroy the country. They really aren’t just a little graphic design “oops” that’s been blown way out of proportion…oh, wait, the transmission into my molars is telling me to change the subject. I must go, I’ve said to much.

itgetter August 19, 2008 at 12:14 pm

[re=62893]itgetter[/re]: Ahhh, now that I have seen the hologram in action I understand. They couldn’t have made Barry’s shirt stripes instead of stars?

loudmouthredhead August 19, 2008 at 12:17 pm

See, the GOP gets off too easy: there’s no way to incorrectly orient the confederate flag. SIde benefit, it looks like naughty pasties when put on a bikini top.

Besides, if we’re all high on arugula and color-balanced ruffage, won’t the flag look perfectly oriented to us?

loudmouthredhead August 19, 2008 at 12:21 pm

[re=62915]Beef Supreme[/re]: MacGuyver could produce the same effect with a penlight and a quarter. COINCIDENCE?!

DoctorCulturae August 19, 2008 at 12:26 pm

Why is it that since Nixon, Demrats am thoh thtoopid? More creative ways to fail after the most horrendous governance since Hoobert Heever.

Perhaps there will be a special video feed at the convention of John and Elizabeth Edwards from different floors of their house to talk about honesty and unity?

loudmouthredhead August 19, 2008 at 12:30 pm

[re=62948]DoctorCulturae[/re]: Would John have pit stains and be all blurry-like?

Darehead August 19, 2008 at 12:31 pm

There is even an art installation of the upside-down Japanese flag:

shortsshortsshorts August 19, 2008 at 12:31 pm

Wut wil thees lefftists think of necst? They doo nnot luv ar cuntry.

ReelectTilden August 19, 2008 at 12:33 pm

If they had just used the pot-leaf flag like I suggested, we wouldn’t be in this mess.

RuperttheBear August 19, 2008 at 12:41 pm

[re=62860]columnv[/re]: It’s going to be a Special Convention. Just wait for the short bus they use for the airport shuttle.

Tybalt August 19, 2008 at 12:42 pm

[re=62928]illnoise[/re]: Of course it moves when you wiggle it. That’s what “wiggle” means.

Lascauxcaveman August 19, 2008 at 12:48 pm

[re=62918]thefrontpage[/re]: I’ve been a Wonkette reader for a long time, and I think I remember a time when you used to make an occasional funny, or possibly relevant, comment. I’m thinking of someone else, maybe?

Servo August 19, 2008 at 12:50 pm

If these people are so passionate about the Flag, why do they have the Confederate flag on their trucks? That’s far more disrespectful than an improperly oriented piece of goddamn plastic.

RuperttheBear August 19, 2008 at 12:55 pm

[re=62990]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: Dance fight!

shortsshortsshorts August 19, 2008 at 1:06 pm

[re=62990]Lascauxcaveman[/re]: You’ve been a commenter since 1684 A.D. Truly. I remember when you were here and disco was all the fad with the kids.

Upside down flag or no upside down flag, we all know that Barry is a sadist terrorist masochist.

TGY August 19, 2008 at 1:16 pm

Oh for the love of Plastic Atheist Jesus.

stolichnayaaa August 19, 2008 at 1:16 pm

I think we all know that the only way to maintain the dignity of the American flag is to stitch it into terrible clothing, to smear it liberally about the screen graphics of your 24-hour news network, or perhaps to use it as a makeshift cape for someone who has been successful at an athletic event.

DoctorCulturae August 19, 2008 at 1:48 pm

[re=62952]loudmouthredhead[/re]: Johnnie E. would lean earnestly into the camera, eyes squinting with faux innocence, and say “There are 2 Mericas, an upstairs and a downstairs. I sleep downstairs next to the guhrage. That’s where I belong. Lizbeth is upstairs where she belongs. We’re apart, but we live in the same house, in the same country. This one won’t burn down like the Mill. Right Lizbeth?”

shortsshortsshorts August 19, 2008 at 1:50 pm

[re=63023]stolichnayaaa[/re]: Or a flag pin. WHY ARE YOU NOT WEARING ONE?????1?

Lascauxcaveman August 19, 2008 at 1:59 pm

[re=63001]RuperttheBear, shortsshortsshorts [/re]: Actually, I didn’t mean to be calling anybody out, I’m just concerned about the death of funny. I noticed lots of Hillary supporters turn into self important concern trolls along the way, and well, it’s kinda sad and all.

[OMG i'm turningintoaconcerntrollfortehfunni - let us not speak of this again.]

denver_80203 August 19, 2008 at 2:03 pm

Look I just got mine and I have it around my neck.. let me tell you that when I look down at this masterpiece there is nothing wrong at all! Everyone is crazy!

4tehlulz August 19, 2008 at 2:15 pm

[re=63023]stolichnayaaa[/re]: This is true; the only way to truly honor the ideals the flag represents is to turn it into a cheap commodity, preferably made with sweatshop labor in China or Vietnam.

RuperttheBear August 19, 2008 at 2:30 pm


*twisting and writhing in expression of agreement and warm manlove for all Wonketteers*

/interpretive dance

Miller August 19, 2008 at 2:31 pm

If he doesn’t put the flag on the passes how will we know what object to burn when he announces his plans for US Sharia law? All of us Obama supporters are Germans.

shortsshortsshorts August 19, 2008 at 2:49 pm

Your efforts will not go unrecognized. CONDEMN unfunny.

Maus August 19, 2008 at 3:06 pm

[re=62860]columnv[/re]: Cheap printers often screw up simple things, they’re not well educated.

More importantly, who approved it, who let it go through, all the way up the chain?

That’s what should concern others.

Darehead August 19, 2008 at 3:15 pm

[re=63179]shortsshortsshorts[/re]: CONDEMN, or silent-cone.
