Barack Obama arrives in Ghana this evening.
The president will be greeted by “welcome home” signs — which is odd for country to do for somebody who absolutely, definitely was not born there.
In any case, some people in Ghana are even handing out flags with Obama’s picture on it in celebration of The One’s visit:
According to section 176 of the rules, customs and etiquette pertaining to the display and use of the flag of the United States of America:
(g) The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.
Will Obama remind Ghanans that putting his picture on it is disrespectul to the U.S. flag? (pause for laughter)
Actually, I expect Obama’s people to pass out a flyer to remind the people of Ghana of the proper and more respectful way to display the U.S. flag:
