Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

Saturday, September 11, 2010


The AFP reported that both Mitch McConnell and John McCain publicly denounced the planned Koran burning on September 11th at the Dove World Outreach Center. However, in light of McConnell's vote on an amendment to make burning the United States flag illegal, he appears to have a consistency problem that could use some explaining. At least McCain's statements on the Koran burning are consistent with his vote in 2006. McConnell's screams hypocrisy. Making it even more relevant is the fac that he was the ONLY Republican in office today who voted against the amendment (Lincoln Chafee was the other).

HERE is how the Senate voted. The flag burning amendment went down by one vote - McConnell's was the deciding one.

Contrast that with these statements from McConnell on September 9th regarding the Koran burning. Via the AFP:
Senate Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell warned that the "stunt" risked endangering US troops in the field, while urging the news media to show restraint amid global outrage at the pastor's plans.

"If this group insists on going forward, I would hope that members of the media will not reward them with what they crave most: News coverage," McConnell said in a statement.
In order to stay consistent, McConnell should have either kept his mouth shut or defended the church's right to carry through with their plans.

Regardless of where you come down on this Koran burning issue, McConnell seems to be more willing to prevent Koran burnings than U.S. flag burnings.
