This image is what RedState.com decided to use to commemorate the first day of a (barely) Democratic Congress.

So many symbols...

Wonkette covers it better, but just to get everything straight:

  • Retreat from Saigon
  • Communist Red Star
  • Communist Hammer and Sickle
  • Rays from Japanese military flag
  • Democrat-Socialists, perhaps referring to Bernie Sanders?

Isn’t that overkill? And who is retreating from Saigon? Republicans? Is Congress the helicopter, and all the people Democrat-Socialists? I don’t understand. 😉
