Apparently that's the memo Obama's campaign office in Houston got.

Democrat Presidential candidate Barack Obama already has an issue with wearing American Flag lapel pins, and even with putting his hand over his heart when the American National Anthem is playing. It will be interesting to see how he'll react (if at all) to the flag hanging in one of his new campaign offices in Houston, Texas.

Yep, that's right -- that is the national flag of Cuba hanging on the wall with none other than Che Guevara superimposed on it.

It's amazing Obama's been able to avoid this kind of thing for as long as he has, but then the loony left didn't coalesce around Obama as early as they did Howard Dean. Ed Driscoll points out the irony of this for a movement that's supposed to be more in the mold of Kennedy than McGovern. A couple of weeks ago Tom Donnelly offered some similar observations.
