Hypocrisy, Much?


The Republican Rubber Stamp Congress is ramping up the Waving the Flag Amendment again for the grand finale of Wedge Issue June.

…perhaps Bill Frist and his Rubber Stamp Brigade ought to have a conversation with George Bush about flag desecration.  He and his Sharpie have some ‘splainin’ to do.

(If you have time, you can make some calls about the flag amendment and/or net neutrailty today.  It’s down to the wire on both issues — and your representatives in Congress ought to know how you feel about both issues.  You can call toll free via the Congressional switchboard at 1-888-355-3588.)

UPDATEDana Milbank has more.  (Good snark today, Dana!)
