Political Opportunism (Today’s Example)

Any shred of respect I had for Hillary Clinton has gone up in smoke like a gasoline-soaked American flag. She’s introduced a bill that would ban flag burning. Even Antonin Scalia, the Supreme Court’s most conservative judge, has said that flag burning represents constitutional protected speech under the First Amendment. It’s too bad Hillary doesn’t have this kind of respect for the First Amendment; she’s got much more important things in mind, like political pandering in the lead-up to a presidential bid.

My favorite comment on H&R about this issue: "I understand that John Edwards plans to publicly stone a gay couple after poll testing showed it would increase his standing among likely voters in South Carolina by 5%."
