The Simpsons - "Amendment to Be"

Everyone seems to be digging the "I'm Just a Bill" post (judging by download numbers, anyway), so here by popular demand (hi Joel!) is the Simpsons parody of that song. It's called "Amendment to Be" and it's a brilliant send-up of the flag-burning debate that emerges each election year in the U.S. In fact, such an effort failed yet again this year. And will fail again in 2008, and 2010, and so forth.

For a decent discussion of U.S. flag-burning law, see the Wikipedia entries for Texas v. Johnson (1989) and U.S. v. Eichman (1990).
