Randy "Duke" Cunningham: Piece of Crap, Part II
In today's Boston Globe, Cathy Young condemns Representative Cunningham's vile statement in support of the flag burning amendment, and the amendment in general:
Support for the amendment has always been a cheap ticket to political grandstanding. This time, though, it has been made worse by shameless exploitation of the memory of the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. ''Ask the men and women who stood on top of the Trade Center," Republican Representative Randy Cunningham of California declared during the House debate. ''Ask them and they will tell you: Pass this amendment."
''Obscene" is not too strong a word for this. If the men and women who died in the World Trade Center could talk to us, I suspect they might be a little more concerned about whether their fellow citizens are any better protected from terrorism today than four years ago.

Rep. Cunningham's remarks are much more offensive than anything that Senator Dick Durbin ever said, so why isn't he being hounded into making a half-assed apology on the floor of the House?
