How do patriots feel about this?

This has been doing the blog tour, so you may have seen it already, but Bush — who's been pushing through laws that would institute stiff penalties for defacing the flag — has been doing that himself… At a recent speech to defense contractors (his biggest contributors), he was handing out signed American flags (AP photo):

Outside of anything else, US Code, Title 4, Chapter 1, Sec. 8 (g) reads:

The flag should never have placed upon it, nor on any part of it, nor attached to it any mark, insignia, letter, word, figure, design, picture, or drawing of any nature.

Now, personally I think you should be able to wipe your ass with the flag if it suits you, but for a President to hand out signed flags as a gift to people who donate a lot of money to get him kept in power seems kind of messed up…

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
