Do-Nothing Congress In Session

We're in the throes of election-year legislating.

Sure-to-fail but GOP base-pleasing bills like a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, and coming up this Monday for debate.... (drum roll please).... "a proposed constitutional amendment banning the desecration of the American flag."

Pleeeeeeze. Not again.

Instead, how about an amendment saying you can't fly the U.S. flag upside down under the Mexican flag. Now that might get the legislatively-jaded U.S. citizens excited.

Or, how about a constitutional ban on funky renditions of our national anthem... I can hear the musically-assaulted sports fans cheering now! No more off-key trills and breathy wording.... where do we vote!

While our do-nothing legislators are at it, how about a constitutional ban on base-pandering, time-wasting legislation!
