McCaskill favors flag burning amendment
Senatorial candidate Claire McCaskill said today she favors an amendment to ban the burning of the American flag. The AP article notes her position on the issue is the same as that of incumbent Jim Talent.
However, Ms. McCaskill notes, quite rightly, that this is not a pressing issue. At a time when the nation should be working on settling major problems such as Iraq and immigration, you can tell it is an election year when non-issues such as flag burning and gay marriage are taking precedent over the aforementioned issues, or other pressing needs such as jobs and health care.
