I have said many times, in this blog and elsewhere, that the secret to successfully believing in conservatism over a sustained period of time is for the believer to not pay any attention to what he or she thinks or says. Because, in the instant that the believer does so, he or she realizes it's nonsense, and is no longer a believer.
So I was not surprised when I read about an incident at the Conservative Political Action Committee conference the other day, in which audience participants were given red, white, and blue flags with the word (I can scarcely call it a name) "TRUMP" printed on it in gold letters. Gold, of course, is Herr Twitler's favorite color; just look at any of his buildings.
So what? Red, white, blue, and "TRUMP." Nothing wrong with that, right?
Well, almost nothing. You see, the Russian flag also uses red, white, and blue, and the colors on each flag, in this case, were arranged as they are arranged on the Russian flag. Take a look.
Did anyone notice? Well, not right away. The CPAC audience waived them wildly, thinking nothing of it, until someone caught on to what was happening and had the flags confiscated.
You know what was going on, folks?
It's called hiding in plain sight. And it, along with the Flynn and FBI scandals, are why we need an independent investigation to find out whether or not we actually did elect the Manchurian Candidate.
