The Gadsden flag, that bright yellow banner with an illustration of a rattlesnake and the words, "Don't Tread On Me," has one Democrat blogger in a stew over conservatives' use of the flag. However, Alton over at Eschew Obfuscation isn't letting him get away with it and other conservative bloggers have taken note, too.
I especially like this from Alton's post:
Why do liberals insist on telling us what we really mean whenever we say or do something? I know a lot of conservatives. One thing most of us are most definitely not is shy when it comes to speaking our mind. If we mean something, we generally go right ahead and say it.Hear, hear! You think the Dem knows yet that he stepped into a rattlesnake den?
Gets me in trouble sometimes. But I was raised that way.
“Mealy—mouthed”. That what my granddad called it when someone he was dealing with tried to say one thing while meaning another.
Ain’t no mealy—mouthed conservatives ’round here.
