Q: I keep seeing images of a redesigned American flag with Obama's campaign logo on it. Is it real?
A: Well, yeah, it's real in the sense that you can purchase a screen print of this artwork by making a campaign contribution on the Obama for America website (UPDATE: it now appears the print is either sold out or no longer offered for sale via the website). But it's not an actual flag, if that's what you mean. It's a picture.
Q: Is it true that Obama has ordered this new flag to be flown over all government buildings?
A: Of course not. It's not a real flag, remember? (You've been reading the Weekly World News again, haven't you!)
Q: Is the Obama campaign the first ever to use a personalized representation of the U.S. flag to promote its candidate?
A: No. There are many past examples of political candidates manipulating the stars and stripes for campaign purposes. It's nothing new.
Q: Isn't this a desecration???
A: You decide.
