Israeli Flags at Turner Election Night Headquarters Under Height-Related Siege

Ten minutes ago, from NY1 reporter Grace Ruah, at the Bob Turner election night headquarters: 

An Israeli flag was on stage (next to American flag), but his campaign manager just pulled it off.

Six minutes later:

Israeli flag back up on stage. Turner campaign manager says the Israeli flag needed to be same height as American flag.

Finally:

Flag update from Turner hq. USA on left. Israel on right. They are the same height. #flagprotocol

Only two more hours of this*.

Give or take**.

*This reminds Politicker of that quote from Mother Night about how one should concern themselves with what one pretends to be less they actually become it. Grace Ruah, we’re talking to you.

**By which we mean, “If you think the last you’re hearing of this is after the results come in, let us assure you, outside of our reportorial capacity and strictly in a speculative one, you are dreadfully, sadly mistaken.
