  • Funny, EPM.

    Michael, 3 different pictures with three different men and three different flag backdrops, all of them show the back of heads.

    What struck me about this is that they're putting up these massive, obscuring decorations on their historical buildings 10 days before Bush is to arrive.

    That's a long time

  • That "American flag" is wrong--the stripe below the blue field should be white, not red.
    At least the Bushies got the number of stars right this time.

  • Bruce, this is the Republican flag. Like the American flag, but distorted.

  • Good catch Bruce, I didn't even notice.

    It's the Albanians not us. At least they've got a week to fix it.

    And, it's still not as bad as playing Taiwan's national anthem for the Chinese preimier.

  • oh yeah, right--that IS the Republican flag--I just now also noticed that all the stars are upside down.
