Faded Glory. The meaning of the alleged bleached flags on the bridge is known to those who are iniated, but may be tangently implying: AMERICA IS FADING.

An interesting perspective.

I wonder if that was the intent of those responsible.

Faded glory could mean a couple different things. It might mean that the liberty this country once valued has faded. But it also might mean faded glory in the sense of the loss of "American Exceptionalism" the Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum types are always lamenting. Two very different ideas.

So is the irony intended or unintended?

It's got to be intentional. I bought a Faded Glory t-shirt with the American flag on it simply because it was made in Pakistan. It was $3.

Yeah, well, the Constitution shouldn't be used as toilet paper, either. But who do you report the White House to?

The White House. Duh! They, like other government bureaucracies will investigate themselves!

Congress, supposedly. But that's done a lot of good throughout history, eh? /sarc ;) (there's probably a good Will Rogers quote about this...if you find one, plz share :) )

Unless it is the flag drape on the coffin of a fallen he-row then you better, Amy Pie. Don't want a goon squad lighting them up with C.S. canistes.
