Seantors Attempt to Burn Bill of Rights in Order to Stop the Burning of Flags

A bunch of idiots "patriots" will be attempting to pass a flag-burning bill today (it's actually an anti-burning amendment, but this is how it's usually referred). Tragically, unlike the other stupid amendments that have been proposed recently, this is more than just a political stunt and tragically, actually has a chance of passing. Cross your fingers that this one fails.

UPDATE: In a vote that was too close for comfort, the bill failed by one vote. Apparently 66 senators don't give a damn what the Constitution says (or at least they care about it much less about their re-election chances).

Telling word choice, even though I don't think he meant it:

"'We are right on the precipice,' said Daniel S. Wheeler, president of the Citizens Flag Alliance, the group leading the push for the amendment."
