It's been almost 20 years since the first patriot-baiting calls for an anti-flag burning amendment, and it could actually pass this time, with the help of a few senators who value pandering to its base over the First Amendment. Which makes us strangely nostalgic for that cheeseball 1990 Madonna video for Rock the Vote, which urged America's youth to exercise its most fundamental right -- while toying with the protect-the-flag crowd. So we searched and found it -- and it's even helpfully translated for our America-hating friends in France!
