Campos: Invesco flag flap straight out of Nixon playbook

Takes him forever to get there, but the Rocky columnist claims the unforced error by the Dems is actually a symbol of pure Republican evil:

What's interesting about this incident is how it's straight out of the most devious pages of Richard Nixon's political playbook: Don't merely accuse your opponents of being misinformed or wrongheaded or even cowardly - instead, impugn their patriotism in as brazen a manner as you think you can get away with.

It's a despicable tactic, but, as the last 40 years of American political history illustrate, an often effective one.

Note that all this took place less than 48 hours after McCain, in his speech accepting the GOP nomination, vowed to end "constant partisan rancor" in Washington.

Somewhere, Richard Nixon is laughing.

Bwahahah--I'm so dead.
