While we were all busy tweeting about it, the Smithsonian Institution decided to grab a piece of history from Colorado conservatives’ act of rebellion at the Republican National Convention.
As the Denver Post reports, a curator asked the delegation if the museum could keep the big triangular sign that marks Colorado’s territory on the floor.
The sign, as you’ll see below, mostly says COLORADO. It has historic value because it’s pretty unusual for a whole delegation to walk out in the middle of a convention, as Colorado’s delegates apparently did on Monday.
Of course, this doesn’t mean you’ll see the thing on display in Washington, D.C. The institution’s curators are always on patrol for interesting objects, and there should be plenty of competition from this year’s RNC.
