After discovering thousands of American flags thrown in the trash after the Democrat Convention, John McCain introduced a bill in the Senate requiring all future American flags be made out of plastic bottles so that Democrats would feel compelled to recycle them instead of trashing them.
"The Democrat Convention was keen to be the greenest event ever," said McCain. "Environmentalists can't be blamed for this this perceived disrespecting of the flag. Flags are not made out of plastic, glass, or compostable material. These poor individuals have probably never owned an actual American flag before and don't know what to do with them after waving them for Obama. A French or UN flag? Yes. An American flag? Unlikely. If we make American flags out of a recyclable material, I suspect that not only will the environmentalists recycle them but they will probably humiliate and fine anyone who dares not recycle them properly."
