America's most pressing priorities

Apparently, Sen. Bill Frist (R-TN), you know, the guy who is our Senate majority leader, has it all figured out. The two most pressing issues in today's America are flag burning and gay marriage (link courtesy of Ex Cathedra).

Seriously, I couldn't make this up if I tried. Well, maybe, but I didn't have to this time.

Amazingly enough, the host of Fox News Sunday, where Frist made this ridiculous claim, called him on it:

You talk about a lot of issues that affect people’s lives. And yet you’re going to bring two constitutional amendments to the Senate floor in the next few weeks, one to ban same-sex marriage, another to ban flag-burning, both reportedly in the papers to mobilize your conservative base. I have to tell you, I talked to a Republican senator this week who said he may vote for both of them but said they’re both pandering.

Yeah, you know. Anything to get Haditha out of the news. And with the mainstream media being as drawn as they are to the so-called "hot button" domestic issues, you can rest assured you won't have to think about Marines killing innocent Iraqi children anymore – at least until next time.
