Let America be America, unless it happens to be Ireland

Yesterday Scott Brown pushed out a video titled "Let America be America." The Boston Globe already reported on how Brown selectively edited quotes. But there is something else wrong with it.

You'll notice that to support the theme of letting America be America, the ad is filled with flags, workers, and more powerful American imagery.

But what's that at 1:06?

Why, it's a butcher standing in front of his store as Ronald Reagan says "It would be nice to hear about the forgotten heroes of America. Like those who create most of us our new jobs, like the owners of stores down the street."

Nice American scene, right?

Unfortunately no. That store is actually in Dublin, Ireland.
