Looks Like Someone Forgot Her Sweater

This is a portion of the Federal Flag Code as found on the US State Department Site:

SEC. 4 That no disrespect should be shown to the flag the United States of America; the flag should not be dipped to any person or thing. Regimental colors, State flags, and organization or institutional flags are to be dipped as a mark of honor.
(a) The flag should never be displayed with the union down, except as a signal of dire distress in instances of extreme danger to life or property.
(b) The flag should never touch anything beneath it, such as the ground, the floor, water,
(c) The flag should never be carried flat or horizontally, but always aloft and free.
(d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery.
It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker's desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.
(e) The flag should never be fastened, displayed, used, or stored in such a manner as to permit it to be easily torn, soiled, or damaged in any way.
(f) The flag should never be used as a covering for a ceiling.
(g) The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.
(h) The flag should never be used as a receptacle for receiving, holding, carrying or delivering anything.
(i) The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard.

Considering the blasting Obama got from a number of Fox News commentators and correspondents for not wearing the American flag pin, I bet they are going to really give it to Palin for wearing the flag in violation of the Federal Flag Code. You know, fair and balanced right? Haaaaaaa Haaaaaa Haaaaaa.

Is this a real photo? I've seen it a couple of times now and I just can't believe it. But then, I forever underestimate the American public's tolerance of the absurd.

I'm pretty sure this has got to be a photoshop job, god I hope so. It was credited but I wasn't able to confirm.

it´s pretty hard to tell with photos anymore. In any case, they should be giving her shit about a lot of other more serious things. With Obama they focus on the flag pins cause they don´t know where to tear him down and they are grasping at little pins.
