'Tis Pity She's a Whore 

As if we needed one, yet another reason for genuine progressives (as opposed to DLC-type Republicans in donkey suits) to dread Hillary Clinton (via MyDD):
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is supporting new legislation to criminalize desecration of the United States flag - though she still opposes a constitutional ban on flag attacks.

Clinton, D-N.Y., has agreed to co-sponsor a measure by Republican Sen. Bob Bennett of Utah, which has been written in hopes of surviving any constitutional challenge following a 2003 Supreme Court ruling on the subject.

Her support of Bennett's bill follows her position in Congress last summer, when a constitutional ban on flag-burning was debated. Clinton said then she didn't support a constitutional ban, but did support federal legislation making it a crime to desecrate the flag.

There's "triangulation," and then there's just being a moron. Hillary has emphatically chosen the moron thing too damn many times. I hope she gets beaten like a gong if she goes for the Big Chair in '08.

Worst case scenario for '08: Hillary vs McCain. It'll be close, but she'll lose. The conservatives just hate her, and McCain seems like a reasonably ethical guy. (But then, my standards for "ethical" are much lower these days. Hell, my standards for President are much lower these days, as I only want someone who is ethical, as opposed to smart, informed, thoughtful, deliberative, consultative, etc)
