Just can't turn your back on 'em

See? John McCain lets those Democrats out of his sight for a second and look what happens:

John McCain’s presidential campaign prepared to chastise Democrats Saturday over leaving behind piles of miniature American flags after Barack Obama’s nomination acceptance speech last Thursday in Denver.

Boy Scouts have arrived with 84 trash bags full of bundles of flags at the site of a McCain rally scheduled to begin at 12:30 p.m. local time in Colorado Springs.

The campaign says the flags were recovered from Invesco Field after the Democrats concluded their convention there, and they are going to be used as part of the warm-up ceremonies before McCain takes the stage for the rally.

FOX News has been told a vendor at Invesco Field found the flags, which were going to be thrown out, and turned them over to the McCain campaign.

That's the kind of thorough sourcing that pushes a story upward on my front page, all right. Plus it has Boy Scouts.

[4 p.m. update: See why some news tips are known as "too good to check out"? But Democratic convention organizers claimed the flags were not going to be discarded — but instead were snatched from the site of Obama’s historic address to carry out a “cheap political stunt.” Good thing nothing about this changes the basic thrust of the story, eh?]

Credit where due: Fox is giving some prominence to this interesting AP item:

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Gov. Sarah Palin’s church is promoting a conference that promises to convert gays into heterosexuals through the power of prayer.

Fly-on-the-wall-wise, though: Do you wonder how that was pitched at the Fox news meeting?

"You'll be encouraged by the power of God's love and His desire to transform the lives of those impacted by homosexuality," according to the insert in the bulletin of the Wasilla Bible Church, where Palin has prayed since she was a child.

I always wonder about the ease with which some people can thwart God's desire, leaving him impotent to act...
