Obama's campaign throws out 12,000 flags after his convention speech

Fox News has this story:

John McCain’s presidential campaign prepared to chastise Democrats Saturday over leaving behind piles of miniature American flags after Barack Obama’s nomination acceptance speech last Thursday in Denver.

Boy Scouts have arrived with 84 trash bags full of bundles of flags at the site of a McCain rally scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. local time in Colorado Springs.

The campaign says the flags were recovered from Invesco Field after the Democrats concluded their convention there, and they are going to be used as part of the warm-up ceremonies before McCain takes the stage for the rally.

FOX News has been told a vendor at Invesco Field found the flags, which were going to be thrown out, and turned them over to the McCain campaign. . . .

Right now Fox seems to be the only news media outlet covering this story.

I would have thought that they would have saved them for a later flag burning rally. Perhaps considerations about the greenhouse gas emissions from such a rally made it untenable.
