Just in time for the Fourth, Brummett offers thoughts on the flag desecration amendment vote.

Clearly, this was simply an all-too-typical Republican tactic timed first for Independence Day and then for the forthcoming midterm elections. It offered red meat for the conservative base to mitigate the White House's and Republican Senate's rare reasonableness on immigration. It was designed to force Democrats to go on record against the flag, so that attack ads can be drawn up.

So, what did the Democrats do? What do Democrats always do anymore? They tried to finesse their beliefs with incremental Republicanism.
