|Annin Flag Factory, Bloomfield, New Jersey|
In the '88 campaign, the theme reached its demagogic apogee when Bush held a campaign event at a flag factory in New Jersey.
I was in North Jersey today for a wedding and, while searching for Starbucks this morning, I stumbled upon the famous flag factory, Annin Flags, "Flagmakers to the world since 1847." So, I thought I'd share a picture of the factory.
As it happens, I know the guy who suggested this event to Bush and consider him a very good friend. Since I'm sure he's deeply embarrassed by this event, I will not shame him by providing his name.
