Remember: Whatever it is, it's not Bush's fault!

morons.org: Sharpie Takes Blame for Flag Desecration
Sanford, a division of Newell Rubbermaid, maker of the Sharpie™ permanent marker has stepped forward to take the heat for Bush's recent flag desecration...

Tuttle continued, "in the future, all Sharpie™ products will warn the user that Sharpies™ are not intended to be used to desecrate the American flag. We apologize that President Bush did not receive correct information."

Bush accepted the apology of Sanford, and told the media that Sharpies™ are "darn good," insisting that he had "complete faith" in their ability to mark on almost any surface.
Nice one. I'd go with 'defacement' rather than 'desecration' though; 'No other God before Me' and all that.
