Showing the flag

Today is Flag Day (whatever the heck that is; I don't think I've ever heard of it before this year). How ironic, then, that at the World Cup, which I remind you is not being held in Iraq but in Germany, a U.S. ally with no recent record of any kind of terrorist activity, the U.S. team rides around in an unmarked bus with no flag or insignia of any kind.

And then we just had Bush's trip to Baghdad, in which he arrived in a plane which may well have had a U.S. flag painted on it, but since the plane arrived at night with its lights off, no one would have been able to see it.

These colors don't run? Maybe, maybe not, but they sure know how to hide.
