Looks like Robin Carnahan missed a couple of Girl Scout meetings

It’s pretty obvious that GOP Senate candidate Rep. Roy Blunt’s “Bull” video gave MO Sec’y of State Robin Carnahan’s campaign some heartburn, or she wouldn’t have responded with this:

A pretty lame, childish and substance-free response.  And interestingly, Ms. Carnahan didn’t point out that Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, D-Kansas City, also voted against the so-called “jobs bill.” Wonder why?

But – what’s wrong with that picture?

Anyone who was a Boy Scout or Girl Scout has been fully educated on United States “flag etiquette”.   According to the guidelines for respecting our U.S. flag,

When on display, the flag is accorded the place of honor, always positioned to its own right. Place it to the right of the speaker or staging area or sanctuary. Other flags should be to the left.

This is actually pretty common knowledge, and I’ve seldom seen it violated.  But should we be surprised, when the President, her philosophical leader, shows his own blatant disrespect to the symbol of our nation?  Remember:  Like Barry, like Robin.

Now I won’t accuse Ms. Carnahan of being “anti-American”.  But I will accuse her of being “ignorant-American”.  She seems to display this on a regular basis.
