Flag Desecration a Finalist in Obama Website Contest? (Video Inside)

As hard as it is to believe, a video of the American flag being desecrated is a finalist in a video contest being held by President Obama's campaign organization (Organizing for America at www.barackobama.com).  By the way, this is the same site that previously compared conservatives to "domestic terrorists". 

From the Politico:

One of the 20 finalists in health care video contest run by Barack Obama's campaign arm features a mural of an America flag splattered with health care graffiti until it's covered completely by black paint.

In the video - which is accompanied by the sound of a heart monitor pumping and then flat-lining - words such as "pre-existing conditions," "homeless" and "death panel" ultimately obliterate the flag, which reappears on screen seconds later with the words "Health Will Bring Our Country Back to Life" on the blue field where the 50 stars usually are.

According to the Organizing for American Web site, the 20 finalists in the "Health Reform Video Challenge" were chosen by a panel of "qualified" Democratic National Committee "employee judges."

A contestant whose video didn't make the final-20 cut complains that a video "defacing the flag" won't do much to help President Barack Obama or the Democrats sell health care reform.

Here's the video, so you can judge how "suitable" it is for yourself.
