Okay, Fox "News" had a slow day. They compared flag lapel pins between Biden and Palin.
Now if you notice closely, Palin's pin only has seven red and white stripes. I have no idea how many stars it has, as the video is such low-resolution, but odds are it doesn't have 50 in that tiny field of blue.
While this pin may be representative of the U.S. flag, U.S. Code Title 4 states:
Sec. 1. Flag; stripes and stars on
The flag of the United States shall be thirteen horizontal stripes,
alternate red and white; and the union of the flag shall be forty-eight
stars, white in a blue field.
and later amended to bring it up to 50 stars :
WHEREAS section 2 of title 4 of the United States Code provides as
follows: ``On the admission of a new State into the Union one star shall
be added to the union of the flag; and such addition shall take effect
on the fourth day of July then next succeeding such admission.'';
So, as Sarah Palin's lapel pin doesn't have the required number of stripes, it is not a U. S. flag. Yes, this is a nit-picking detail, but for someone who goes to attack Senator Obama on his patriotism, she doesn't stand on firm ground herself.
