We can't be sure if Marino is a geographic genius or illiterate... but his staff certainly gets an "F" when it comes to proper display of the US Flag. There are rules about how to display a flag, and the campaign photos on Marino's own web site show, well, clear violations. Take the Marino family portrait (top). At least from this angle, the flag appears to be touching some shrubbery—a clear violation. Then there is the "God Bless" eagle poster (below). You're not supposed to write anything over a flag... or make it into artwork. Very naughty! Violation 3 is in the "white room" photo (below). The enormous gap between the left row of stars and the edge of the flag violates the clear and precise proportion rules. So if Mr. Marino is uninformed about proper flag display, perhaps one can extrapolate about his geographic knowledge. Is that fair? Or should we cut the guy a break?
