The Obama Flag - O Noes!

Over at DailyKos they've pointed out a column by Mark Levin at the National Review that decries, among other things, the existence of "special Obama flags."
Here's the flag they're talking about. Obama was seen speaking in Toledo with this flag behind him, and a number of right-wing loonies went nuts over it.

Hey Mark, in case you haven't heard: that flag has flown in those parts since 1902 and the O has nothing to do with Obama. It actually stands for Ohio. Not too surprising since it's their state flag! Obama had as much to do with that O being on the flag as he had to do with a backwards B ("for Barack," said the McCain campaign) scratched onto the face of Ashley Todd.
