This picture is for those who haven't seen one of these two signs off of I-10 and are wondering what the bloggers are talking about lately.
The conversation started when David K wrote about the flag on Silvestre Reyes' two billboards of off I-10. As you can see the flag seems to be backwards. As everybody knows the flag is supposed to be with the stars to the left. David K had mentioned some advertising guidelines that had been broken only to make Jaime Abeytia accuse him of falsifying the regulations to prove his point.
This should have been an argument about advertising and not about politics....
It has somehow been twisted into an attack on the Congressman by his supporters and in return his they have attacked the Congressman's opponents. What do they have to do with the lack of attention to detail of the people who made the billboard? I posted a comment on my own post saying it would happen.
"Let's see how long it takes Jaime to mention Tim Besco or Tim Collins on this one. We all know they had nothing to do with the whole flag SNAFU.."
But if we want to get political about it......let's look at the sign a little closer. Where is the disclaimer that is supposed to be printed "very clearly" on the bottom of the billboard? It is nowhere to be found. It is my understanding that Tim Besco was fined for not having it on his billboards. It was most likely pointed out by the Congressman's staffers or supporters. Where are their fingers now? The Congressman better set a little money aside for this blunder.
In all seriousness, I don't think this backwards billboard is an indicator of the Congressman's ability and should not keep you from voting for the Congressman..........
What should keep you from voting for the Congressman is his inability to represent us in Washington. Its time we look the other way on the Congressman and vote him out of office!!!!!
