DNC Picks Flag Descration Video as One of 20 Health Care Finalists

Via Politico:

One of the 20 finalists in health care video contest run by Barack Obama’s campaign arm features a mural of an America flag splattered with health care graffiti until it’s covered completely by black paint.

In the video – which is accompanied by the sound of a heart monitor pumping and then flat-lining – words such as “pre-existing conditions,” “homeless” and “death panel” ultimately obliterate the flag, which reappears on screen seconds later with the words “Health Will Bring Our Country Back to Life” on the blue field where the 50 stars usually are.

According to the Organizing for American Web site, the 20 finalists in the “Health Reform Video Challenge” were chosen by a panel of “qualified” Democratic National Committee “employee judges.”

A contestant whose video didn’t make the final-20 cut complains that a video “defacing the flag” won’t do much to help President Barack Obama or the Democrats sell health care reform.

“They should never pick that,” said the contestant, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “It makes the Democrats look really, really bad.”

Hmmm, you know the Soviet Union had crappy universal health care. I wonder how many of the commie-crats would object to me spray painting the old sickle and hammer?

Might as well find out.

Ok comments suggest a photoshop contest. So I'm cool with that. Take your fave commie flag, mess it all up, and I'll post it. Fatwas available!
