Hawkeye Review: Culver stumbles out of the gate

Excerpted from this post at Hawkeye Review

In the opening moments of the 2010 media campaign for Terrace Hill, our own Governor commits a US Flag "faux pas" by breaking protocol and placing the stars and stripes to the "speakers left" instead of the obligatory "speakers right." ... "When on display, the flag is accorded the place of honor, always positioned to its own right. Place it to the right of the speaker or staging area or sanctuary. Other flags should be to the left." From a positioning standpoint, it's much better strategy to attack than to defend so it's not surprising that Culver & Campaign Inc. have embarked on this expensive media strategy early on. Attempting to "define the argument" will fail however, since Culver has already been judged by the Iowa taxpayers who now rate him at an all time low since his inauguration as Governor.
