Dan Flynn ruins the Fourth of July


"For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man."
Mark 7:21-23

Fresh off his failure to impeach Wallace Hall at Joe Straus' behest, Dan Flynn made quite the scene at a Fourth of July parade this past weekend:
On Saturday, July 4th, Lakeside Baptist Church in Canton sponsored a July 4th celebration. There were concessions, fireworks, games, music, and folks enjoying one another’s company. 

At one point in the festivities, State Rep. Dan Flynn (HD-2) arrived for a presentation of an American and a Texas flag to a local veterans’ organization.

Many attendees viewed Flynn’s flag dedication as a clumsy attempt at campaigning.  “Clumsy” because as he was presenting the American flag, he dropped it on the ground, and when he held up the Texas flag, it was backwards.

“Campaigning” because Flynn will be facing challenger Bryan Slaton for his seat, who is supported by the Tea Party.  Rep. Flynn knows that his reelection will be an uphill battle, and if he isn’t worried, he should be.

Maybe he should have rehearsed.

Customary protocol dictates that when presenters go before an audience, they are supposed to recognize any VIPs or public officials who may be in attendance. 

State Senator Bob Hall was there, because Lakeside is his home church, but Flynn ignored him.
