The flag-burning amendment failed, which is great. However, Senator Dayton voted for it. What? Sometimes, I really have to wonder what he is thinking.

There are only a handful of documented cases of flag burning every year; less than ten for sure. And burning the flag is almost always a pretty stupid idea that just pisses people off and hurts your cause. But if this thing passes, I believe I will have the uncontrollable urge to do just that. I predict that should such a stupid amendment ever be enacted, then the number of actual flag burnings will skyrocket.

Since this amendment was a solution to a problem that doesn't exist, I expect that an increase in flag burning is exactly what its drafters hoped for if it did pass. Then they could point at all of the godless flag-burning liberals as yet another way of energizing their base.
