The contrary winds of politics
While watching MSNBC (due to blood pressure problems, I never watch Fox), they often have a live shot of the Capital Building in the background. There are several flags on the roof adjacent to the dome and you would think that they'd all blow in one direction. But, no, this is Washington D.C.! Sometimes you'll see one blowing to the right while another is blowing to the left. Even the wind in Washington can't agree!
Now, as a sailor, I realize that this is due to the wind eddies created by the dome. But, it is amusing to watch the wind blow in two different directions in the backround as the pundits pound away at each other.
No real substance to this thread. Just a funny little phenomenon.
Hopefully on Election Day, there will be more flags blowing to the left then the right!
