If you don't like my fire then don't come around...

Anyone else think the ongoing debate on flag burning is utterly ridiculous? I mean its not like we have anything else going on (Iraq/Iran/North Korea/Afghanistan/minimum wage/immigration/and on/and on/and on).

Anyway the vote for the amendment failed- by one vote! What a farce. I know that Sen. Clinton was behind this originally, and that's just really unfortunate. Are we really going to amend the Bill of Rights? We think this is that important? Are there people out there burning flags? Give. Me. A. Break.

From the Detroit Free Press article:

The vote was scheduled by the Republican leadership to come just before July 4. Joining Republicans in supporting the amendment were 14 Democrats, including Debbie Stabenow of Michigan. The state's other senator, Carl Levin, also a Democrat, voted against the amendment. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., spoke of the advantage, for those voting in favor of the amendment, of being able to go home and tell constituents, "we did the right thing."

Is there a bigger joke on the hill right now than Bill Frist? (No.)

So I flip on CNN last night almost as a joke to find out if I can see some news about what's gonig in Gaza right now.

Like that is an even option now to flip to a cable news channel and expect to see real news being covered.

Shockingly, CNN was talking about this flag burning "debate".

Give me a break. LIke we don't have anything more pressing to discuss right now than the freaking debate on flag burning.

To answer you question, no there is not a bigger joke in Washington right now than Bill Frist. But I almost think the Dems right now are worse. They actually think they are going to make some headway in '06. They are going backwards even further with the direction of their current leadership in Washington.

Freaking losers.
